rather Alt-F7 to go back (without Ctrl).
None of these do anything since upgrading to the version of X in Sarge
(4.3 I think -can't remember the number).
I'm not using gnome or kde - just plain icewm.
Strange. SOA#1 -> I have debian/unstable, X 4.3, wmaker and gnome (I'm
changing from wmaker to gnome). And shortcuts works OK. So probably you
have something misconfigured. BTW, before X upgrade it has worked? Maybe
your keyboard is misconfigured and Alt is represented by another key?
There are 2 Ctrls and 2 Alt keys, try combinations (for example, right Alt
may be configured as diactrics (have I spelled it correctly?) switch and
cannot be used to Ctrl-Alt-anything.
