Starting Xmodmap on login (12.10)
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.
