Enable Kill Xserver

In Karmic the restart Xserver shortcut is disabled by default. Enable it thus:

1. In the menu, go to System->Preferences->Keyboard (not Keyboard Shortcuts)

2. Go to Layouts tab, click Layout options

3. Expand “Key sequence to kill the X server”. Check “Ctrl+Alt+Backspace”

4. You’re Done.
