And what about

RFE: Zap after warning (
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=494528 )

They've chosen this way in opensuse - first time you press c+a+bs it
produces warning (bell) and second time it works as usual

And bonus: it uses less space than two new packages :o)

If and when the RFE's gets accepted, maybe. I wouldn't count on it.
Meanwhile, x-kit is being used by a number of other programs and useful
to have in the repository.  If you have x-kit, dontzap is just a small
script. No big deal.


Please.  Stop talking about xkit.  We have a library for this already,
it's called pyxf86config.  Writing the change to the X log is stupid if
you can also do it as a runtime XKB change, like mapping Caps Lock to
Compose like a sensible person.

The dontzap script is the wrong solution.  Please stop suggesting it.

- ajax

well since the xorg devs decided to disable x zapping please suggest the
right solution?


How about trying this? 'Put it back in yourself'.  ;-)

It looks like this.


Section "ServerFlags"
Option "DontZap" "false"
EndSection




and since were supposed to be moving away from using an xorg.conf all of us who want to be able to restart x (and believe me as good as those xorg devs think their code is it still happens quite regularly) without having to go to a virtual terminal etc have to regress to using one to keep people who want to make linux like windows or those emacs users who don't type to well happy.
