    For me, that combination only makes a screenshot, and I am default settings.

    CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE should be left enabled since it is a very good shorctut. I can not see any reason to disable it.

    think this would be the best solution for both points of view.

    I also need this combo since it is the easiest way to kill a hanging X
    but i understand that some people tend to press that occasionally.
    I think the first time I used this shortcut it was not on purpos lol

    I use it every day. Make an option for disabling - leave it on by default.

    Why disable it? It would be a dumb idea.

    This is Linux, not Mac or Windows. People need to understand that.

    Personally, after a year using Linux, I never even knew about ctrl-alt-backspace... now it's a lifesaver to me.

    Make it so you can disable it in the preferences menu somewhere. Do not disable it by default.

    The UI for Kubuntu is ready but won't be available until my "dontzap" package is uploaded. The UI for Ubuntu will be finished soon and you will also be able to enable or disable the option from the command line with something like this:
    to enable
    Code:
    sudo dontzap -e
    to disable
    Code:
    sudo dontzap -d
