X.org removed that feature few versions ago, if you want to have the
ability to use it again need to start it with "-retro".
Or, you can add the following to your xorg.conf:
Section "ServerFlags"
         Option  "DontVTSwitch"          "False"
         Option  "DontZap"               "False"

The first allows you to use CTRL+ALT+Function keys to switch between
the console and X.

The second allows you to use CTRL+ALT+Backspace to kill the X server.


Thanks for your reply. I think I'm using a newer version of X because the options you and Sdavtaker described did not work for me or maybe i did something wrong, but, anyhow, I was able to find this snippet of code in FreeBSD forums,it did the trick: Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp", it needs to be added to xorg.conf, under the "Section InputDevice". Now I'm able to terminate X by pressing ctrl_alt_backspace. I'm enclosing it here for anybody having the same problem and the other options are not working for them:-)

code added to xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
