1.Is there a keyboard shortcut for force quit?
2.Is there any way to put the force quit applet/shortcut into my menus rather than panel?
3.In the Xkill command, is there any way to cancel the skull and the operation? (like pressing esc in force quit cancels the force quit operation).
4.What does ctrl+alt+backspace do? Shouldn't it kill X? For me it does nothing, as if there is no binding? So how do I kill X?

check here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XorgCtrlAltBackspace

i think you just have to install dontztap (sudo apt-get install dontzap)
and then run the command 'sudo dontzap --disable'

1. I don't think there is.
2. No. It's not a shortcut, it's a panel applet (as in "a program that runs in the panel")
3. Sure. Press any other mouse button than the left button.
4. It used to kill X, now it's disabled by default. You ca enable it again in xorg.conf, but Alt-SysRq-k will give the same result and still works out-of-the-box.
