How to disable Ctrl+Q for all applications in Linux?

+6 votes

I suddenly pressed CTRL+Q as I am using Ubuntu Mint, but I want to get rigged of this situation.
Is there any undo shortcut for it or any possible answers.

Go to Menu bar search for Keyboard in your Ubuntu Mint.
Click on Shortcut Tab on Keyboard Dialog box.
On Custom Shortcut vertical tab create one Add Custom Shortcut.

Name: fake
Command: /bin/false 

and in Keyboard bindings
assign CTRL+Q
Now you should have a new entry with your applied name and your keyboard setting. Every time you press Ctrl+Q your system will run the command /bin/false which basically does nothing. So this is a workaround to disable the setting.
