    Will this be included in the default installation, or does this pkg have to be installed afterwards via pkg-managers?

    I wish they (Xorg-devs) hadn't used inverted logic for the DontZap option. They could have just as easily named it AllowZap like all the other Allow* options. Always makes me think twice to get what I want.

    I *think* this will be included by default. I'll ask other developers just to be sure.

    Yes, I know what you mean. In the Kubuntu GUI you won't see the name of the option at all but only something like "Ctrl+Alt+Backspace restarts the xserver"

    Why are they having us vote if they already decided. The vote is strongly on the don't change it side.

    This vote was put up by an tester just like you and me...
    Nothing to do with ubuntu-devs.

    As for the dontzap, ubuntu-desktop doesn't include it (yet)?

    I know, stupid question, but what is the code for me to get in the 'x' file to add that 'Dontzap' option?
    Thanks


    EDIT: I am refering to the actual 'sudo' whatever code, to bring up the file.
