If you want to enable the Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to kill the x-server then here's how:

First of all it's not in a logical place at all!!

'System Settings' > 'Country/Region & Language' > 'Keyboard Layout' > 'Advanced' tab.
You then need to scroll just over half way down to find the  entry 'Key sequence to kill the X 
server' - check the box next to 'Control + Alt + Backspace' and then click 'Apply'.

Now you have control over your machine once again........

Told you it was in a strange illogical place!
