View Full Version : Killing X is too easy

For some reason, the keystrokes [Ctl][Shift][Backspace] and even hitting [Shift][Backspace] acts like [Ctrl][Alt][Backspace] in my FC5 install. I've checked the xorg.conf and there's nothing fancy in there about the kill sequence.

The keyboard is set up as a "pc105' us keyboard.

Anybody else seen this? It's intensely annoying, espeicially considering the way I type...

Thanks,

Eric

FYI.. Also, I've tried "DontZap" in xorg.conf and for reference purposes, I'm running Xgl, not vanilla xorg.

For me, it's hard to press three keys at the same time unless I try to do it

Shift-Backspace works reliability and is only two characters. Imagine typing an all caps word while holding down the shift key.. if you make a mistake and tap the backspace before releasing the shift, there goes my whole X session. :(
