Default xorg.xonf, Input_class keyboard

Hi,

in my xorg.conf I have set this:


Section "InputClass"
Identifier "keyboard-all"
Driver "evdev"
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps,compose:ralt,terminate:ctrl_alt_b ksp"
Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,caps:super"
MatchIsKeyboard "on"
EndSection


but neither "ZAP" (ctrl-alt-backspace) nor caps-lock as Super-key
work. the Dont_Zap option is not set ...


When Caps-Lock is pressed, xev prints:

KeyPress event, serial 40, synthetic NO, window 0x2400001,
root 0x124, subw 0x0, time 1516416, (78,125), root1717,147),
state 0x10, keycode 23 (keysym 0xff09, Tab), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (09) " "
XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (09) " "
XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 40, synthetic NO, window 0x2400001,
root 0x124, subw 0x0, time 1516552, (78,125), root1717,147),
state 0x10, keycode 23 (keysym 0xff09, Tab), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (09) " "
XFilterEvent returns: False


How can I install/activate/repair the above settings?


Thank you very much in advance for any help!

Best regards,
mcc

Does:

Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"

on its own work?

On one box of mine I had to add:

MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"


Also, check that you have not any old conflicting directives in Section
"ServerLayout", like e.g. InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
