    Ctrl + Alt + Backspace

    Hi all,

    I want to enable the zapping with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace in Xorg.

    I have create the following xorg configuration file:

    Code:
    Section "InputClass"
            Identifier      "keyboard-sg"
            MatchIsKeyboard "on"
            Option  "XkbLayout"     "ch"
            Option  "XkbOptions"    "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
    EndSection
    But it does not seem to have any effect.

    I am using Fedora 18 x86_64 btw.

    Just an update. It seems to be related to GNOME only. On e.g. KDE, the above settings work as expected.

    Settings -> Region and language settings -> (they seemed to have changed things in F18) Language Keyboard -> Shortcuts

    Ok so gnome-tweak-tools to the rescue.

    Code:
     sudo yum install gnome-tweak-tools
    Go to typing, and you should see an entry for "terminate". And voila, there you go.

    (Please mark it as solved if this works for you)
