Hello, The Xorg project has changed the default DontZap setting to "true" after complaints from desktop users that accidentally hit Ctrl+Alt+Backspace when trying to type Alt+Backspace, Ctrl+Backspace, or Shift+Backspace, or who had StickyKeys enabled. Ctrl+Alt+Backspace is also a keyboard shortcut for deleting certain expressions in C and Java modes in Emacs. lots of people have being complaining it about since for the adverage user at least it means if X ever stops working they have to reboot so its about as useful as windows lol. more knowledable users could go to tty1 and then login again to get back to tty5. to renable the function you can do the following add: Option "DontZap" "false" to the ServerFlags section in xorg.conf. I have uploaded an image of the xorg.conf from ubuntu jaunty beta running in virtualbox. what section do i add the option to? pretty much all distro next releases are shipping with xorg 1.6 so i want to know where to add the option to renable it.
