Restore Ctrl-Alt-Backspace in Ubuntu

In the last release of Ubuntu (9.04) Ctrl-Alt-Backspace key sequence normally used to kill the X server was disabled by default.

Apparently many people like to kill their X server this way so a workaround “dontzap” package was used to enable it.

With the latest Ubuntu release ( 9.10 aka, Karmic ) it’s even simpler to enable it.

To enable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace in latest Karmic release simply go to :

System ->  Preferences -> Keyboard  -> Layout (Tab) ->

Layout Options -> Key sequence to kill the X server ->

(Tick)  Control + Alt + Backspace.
