need to change a key on my keyboard


If say when you press "a" on your keyboard "b" is echoed to your screen, but only when X is loaded, is there an easier way than xmodmap to try to tell the Xserver to echo the correct key.

Is this a bug with XFree86 4.3.0 and the "be" keyboard map ? I'm using Window Maker, but I don't think that has anything to do with the problem. Plus didn't have this problem with Slack 8.2 either.
