ALT CTRL BACKSPACE. Why oh why was this feature reworked? I’ve read somewhere that you have to hit alt ctrl bs twice to logout of X, but I never get to that second hit because the first one emits a long shrill beep. It’s annoying enough to wake the dead, so I don’t dare do it twice.
I’ve tweaked the kde4 notification options in systemsettings, but it has no effect on the beep. Also, console login beeps each time you do anything. Can somebody please tell me how to disable the bleeping sounds? I am this close to ripping out my eardrums because alt f1 and alt ctrl bs are shortcuts I use very often.
Press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace Twice to Terminate the X Server
Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Backspace on GNOME, KDE, or any other graphical desktop does not terminate the X server any longer. If you press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace within 2 seconds again, it terminates the X server. On most hardware you hear a beep after the first Ctrl-Alt-Backspace press.
In the past it was possible to accidentally terminate an X server using this key combination. Nevertheless, if you want to continue to use this key combination to terminate your X server, remove the following line from the ServerFlags section of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:
Awesome. Thank you. You just solved the first half of my problem with this release. On a side note, did the beep reeeally have to be that long, that loud and at such a high frequency? A short and sweet ogg file would have sufficed - gods know kde has plenty of them to spare.
The beeps in console login still exists. Anyone know how I can disable this? Thanks.

On my hardware, its a short, normal frequency, nearly audible little beep.
