    How to enable Ctrl + Alt + Backspace in Xubuntu 12.04?

    The way to enable it in Ubuntu doesn't work in Xubuntu.
    There is no "keyboard layout" in Xubuntu 12.04.
    There are two sides to every story: my side and the wrong side.

    Re: How to enable Ctrl + Alt + Backspace in Xubuntu 12.04?

    There are a number of ways to do this.

    1. According to: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XorgCtrlAltBackspace/, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace was replaced with AltGR-Sysreq-K (I believe AltGr would be the Right Alt key).

    2. The command "setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp" should re-enable it. You can add this command to your startup apps or to ~/.xprofile (if the file doesn't exist, create it. Also make sure its executable). But this is not a system-wide change - only for the user that has this set.

    3. As root, create the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/2-dontzap.conf with the following content:
    Code:
    Section "ServerFlags"
      Option "DontZap" "false"
    EndSection
    (note: you'll need to restart X for this to take effect.)
