Control + Alt + Backspace doesn't work :(
 
Hi,

I've upgraded one of my machines from Fedora 14 to Fedora 15 using the
DVD, which basically worked fine. There were some things to fix, but
that was due to the customizations I've made.

However there is one specific thing that doesn't seem to work, and I
can't figure out why. This is the Ctrl + Alt + Backspace shortcut in
order to restart the X server.

I've replaced /etc/inittab with /etc/inittab.pacnew, although it states
that it doesn't matter anyway as it won't be interpreted anyway.

I can't remember to have changed any settings of the X server, and it
has worked before just flawlessly. Anything I'm overlooking, or where
should I start my research?

Any help appreciated ;).

Best regards,
Karol Babioch

If you're using the Gnome shell, use ALT-F2 then r to restart the shell.

I don't know if ALT-F2 results in also restarting the X server. But I do know that Ctrl + Alt + Backspace has been disabled by default for a while now. Even as far back as F11 if i am not mistaken. See "man xorg.conf" for details on how to enable.

This file could be related:

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-system-setup-keyboard.conf

this file contains the following:

Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,"

Which hadn'T worked, for whatever reason. However I now realized that
the shortcut wasn't enabled in the Gnome settings. I can't remember to
have it disabled, but now it is working ;). Thanks anyway.

Best regards,
