    Found the fix. Somehow Disabled now so re-activated them in System Settings Keboard Shortcuts.

    Question Re: Alt-Tab and Alt-4 don't work

    Hmmm. Systems Settings Keyboard Shortcuts show Ctrl-Alt-Del as logout but nothing happens.

    Not the same "function"
    Alt-SysReq-K kills X, Ctrl+Alt+Delete runs this which works fine here
    /usr/lib/indicator-session/gtk-logout-helper --logout

    I never said that these two were the same...
    But, how come if X is killed I end up, again, on login screen...

    Didn't quote you...
    Probably there is some tech difference between Alt-SysReq-K & Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, I don't bother so much in that regard, the result is the same here - kills the session & goes to login without any prompt, ect. (if open unsaved work then changes lost

    So certainly will apologize for self inflicted ignorance in such matters

    I did not feel it like that anyhow. I just wanted to clarify...

    I see the only use of either in situations when X stops being responsive... In that case I use SK (S part of REISUB, and K)

    • S: Sync all mounted filesystems (to save what saved can be...)

    No need for any apologizing...
