Xorg problem --- How do i reenable ' ctrl alt backspace ' in Xorg?
i tried adding Options "DontZap" "false" to xorg.conf but i stall can't use ctrl alt backspace.
What distribution are you running?
DontZap has also been deprecated now.
Couple of options that might work.
Set this to run when you start your window manager/desktop environment.
setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp
Add the following to /etc/hal/fdi/policy/10-keymap.fdi to enable this behavior. If that file does not exist, copy it from the template at /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-keymap.fdi:
# cp /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-keymap.fdi /etc/hal/fdi/policy/10-keymap.fdi
<merge key="input.xkb.options" type="string">terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp</merge>
<merge key="input.xkb.options" type="string">grp:alt_shift_toggle,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp</merge>

I had same problem a while ago. It turned out to be the Gnome keyboard indicators fault. Right click on it, Keyboard preferences, Layouts, Layout options, in the middle - Key sequence to kill the X server. Probably some other key combinations in that menu are preventing the ctrl or alt being understood the way it is necessary.
