How to disable the keys combination "ctrl+alt+backspace" on Solaris?
By pengyang on Sep 14, 2006
After making a new installation for Solaris Nevada 47 x86, the keys combination "ctrl+alt+backspace" which can log out without warning hurt me again.
I was just writing some new stuff, and I didn't know how I clicked these three keys at the same time. Then my gnome desktop logged out automatically, with data losing... As I could remember, I clicked the space button just before the black window showed up. Maybe it's not caused by the keys combination, maybe it's related to the Chinese input method. Anyway, after I disable "ctrl+alt+backspace", it never appeared again.
The instructions are as follow:
1) cd /etc/X11
2) cp .xorg.conf xorg.conf
3) Edit xorg.conf and add the following clause
Option "DontZap" "true"
4) ctrl+alt+backspace to restart your x window manager.
