Enable Scroll Lock in XWindows


I've set up XWindows to load a custom file using an .XSession file. I recently noticed that the scroll lock and caps lock keys weren't working.

I was able to correct the caps lock issue by adding a line to the .XSession file:

xmodmap -e keycode 0x03a - CapsLock

I attempted to do the same for the Scroll Lock key, but it doesn't seem to work. The line I used was:

xmodmap -e keycode 0x046 = Scroll_Lock

Can anyone help? I'm desperate... but then again, aren't we all!
