I installed Archlinux yesterday on my Aspire One netbook. I installed fluxbux window manager with the ROX file manager/desktop manager.
Everything was working fine until I was walking through a guide to set up the Fn keys to use the keyboard hotkeys for changing the brightness and audio settings here: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/..._function_keys
I used xmodmap to set additional short cuts. Every since, I can't use my keyboard when I run 'startx'. My laptop touch mouse is working but I noticed the cursor speed has slowed down drasticly since I input the above changes.
I tried putting in 'setxkbmap no' in my ~/.xinitrc, 'no' was the language which is set up in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf and was working before. I also reverted to a back-up of my xorg.conf which I had saved a few hours before, which also didn't work.
What could the problem could be here? How can I ensure my keyboard is being properly initialise when I start up Xorg/fluxbox?
