I have recently installed KDE 3.2, and I like it, but I have one problem.
Previously (with KDE 3.1.4), /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc would get executed when X started, and run xmodmap on /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap. Now it appears to not get run. I have symlinked xinitrc into ~/.kde/Autostart, but that only works locally, and I would like a neat global solution.
Currently I start kdm from /etc/inittab, with the line:
and my xinitrc looks like this:
# $Xorg: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.3 2000/08/17 19:54:30 cpqbld Exp $
# merge in defaults and keymaps
if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $sysresources
if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
if [ -f $userresources ]; then
xrdb -merge $userresources
if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
What I really want (I think) is to have X start on boot, and for xinitrc to load kdm, but if I substitute "startx" for "/opt/kde/bin/kdm" I get errors. Could anyone help?
