    Xmodmap In full screen Terminal

    I run Ubuntu 8.10 on my macbook, and have an Xmodmap file that switches my command and control keys. When I log into the gnome desktop, this works fine, but when I enter the full screen terminal, this does not carry over. How can I load the Xmodmap file while in the shell?

    On a related note, what is the proper name for the full screen terminal?

    Additional information / Rephrase:

    Is it possible to load an Xmodmap without GDM/X?

    For screen terminal as in Virtual Terminal (CTRL + ALT + F1) ?

    I am referring to the environment you are in when you do not have gdm or X running.

    So, not a virtual terminal.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    Well, if X or GDM is not running, the only thing left is a virtual terminal. But you can not use xmodmap in the command line, since xmodmap requires Xorg to be running.
