PROBLEM: Disable CTRL+ALT+DEL in Novell Linux Desktop


  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Run "/opt/gnome/bin/gconf-editor" (without quotes).
  3. In case you have not logged in as root, enter the root password at the prompt.
  5. On the right hand side of the window Select "logout".
  6. Type in the key sequence that you prefer (Note: Follow the "Long Description" in "Key Documentation" area at the bottom of the window)

You should now be set. When you press CTRL+ALT+DEL, it should be sent to the remote machine.

Note: This should also work for Gnome users on SUSE Linux.
