Ctrl + Alt + Del

Sometimes users get annoyed with not having their favorite Windows key combination "Ctrl + Alt + Del" working on Linux Box. Well here's how to view your process manager for "Ctrl + Alt + Del" :

  1. Start gconf-editor via terminal / Alt+F2 & navigate to : apps > metacity > global_keybindings

  2. Double click on run_command_1 and change its value to <Control><Alt>Delete

  3. The navigate to : apps > metacity > keybinding_commands

  4. Double click on command_1 and change its value to gnome-system-monitor

  1. With any text editor edit you ~/.fluxbox/keys file, Example:
    $ vim ~/.fluxbox/keys

  2. Append this at the end of the file:
    Control Mod1 Delete :ExecCommand xterm -e top
    You can use gnome-system-monitor instead of xterm -e top, but I have used it to retain Fluxbox's spirit of minimalism

Relogin to check its effect...
