Re-Enable restarting X server with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace in Jaunty


Normally, we can restart x server with CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE keyboard combination in an older version of Ubuntu.But in jaunty this is not possible because newer version of Xorg disabled this property.So that if we want to re-enable this feature we just have to modify Xorg.conf file,lets do that from console

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

then add this 3 line to it

  1. Section "ServerFlags"
  2. Option "DontZap" "False"
  3. EndSection

then save the file and quit.Logout and login again, it should be work.

Ubuntu Volume Wheel Problem [ Fix ]


I have a toshiba u305-s5077 laptop.It had a problem with volume wheel like when i tried to use volume wheel it makes the volume iteratively maximize or minimize(And it has no end).While it is happening i cant write anything or i cant click something.That’s why i had to restart X screen with CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE.

At first if it won’t work if you don’t want to kill X screen at least you can use this;
Change your status to text mode via using CTRL+ALT+ {F1-F2-F3-F4-F5-F6}.Then turn back X Screen with ALT+F7.

Lets make it works:
Firstly lets create a backup if it wont work or if something goes wrong we can handle it.
