Hi there,

I'm a little confused about the automatic startup of Xmodmap. The web said that I just have to create

  • an .Xmodmap file in my home folder or
  • an .xinitrc or .xsession script in home or
  • a startup application/command launching xmodmap

but none of these worked oob.


After some messing around I found that adding a sleep instruction to my xmodmap script started via startup applications achieved the desired effect.


As I didn't find any kind of hints to sleep being necessary: is this really needed/intended? Should any of the other ways (plain .Xmodmap file or .xinitrc/.xsession script) work in QQ?


Thanks a lot for clarification.
