Question Disabling certain key combinations


Hi,

How do i disable certain key combinations such as Ctrl-N, Ctrl-S, Ctrl-W.. on GNOME and KDE. I have tried changing the keymaps using xmodmap. That way I was able to disable the keyboard keys. But what I want is to disable only certain key combinations.

Thanks,
Harsha

In the KDE control center, click on Regional and Accessibility -> Keyboard Shortcuts. The key combinations are defined there. Just edit the combinations to remove those you don't want.

I believe there is something similar in Gnome, but I don't use Gnome so I can't tell you how it's done.
