Question command executed on trapping Shift+Del


Friends,
Which command is actually executed when we trap Shift and Del?
Is there anyway to avoid using this combination? just like we do with Ctrl+Alt+Del in /etc/inittab?

It doesn't mean anything but I don't know any kernel, GNU/Linux distribution or software where SHIFT+DEL is a valid key combo. Some key combos have specific meaning and are intercepted on different levels like CTRL+ALT+DEL vs CTRL+ALT+BKSPC shows. And what do you mean exactly with "trap"? Disable? Globally? Or Xorg only? Please elaborate. BTW this wasn't a Linux Security question AFAIK so I moved your thread.

trapping means holding Shift and Delete key together!

One of my friends wanted to disable this feature in Gnome!
Sorry.. i started this thread in Security thinking that it has got something to do with file security!

Trapping is not performing a key combo but intercepting the key combo. I have no idea what (in) GNOME assigns SHIFT+DEL, maybe look at the available configuration tools.

There is no SHIFT+DEL shortcut key by default in Gnome.You can check it here.
So,SHIFT+DEL is a custom key combination which you can disable easily,just follow this guide.
