Thanks. I tried removing the line that loads .Xmodmap from my .xinitrc and replacing it with direct calls to xmodmap -e, but that didn't help. Just like my method of loading .Xmodmap, the modifier map is correct immediately after the calls to xmodmap -e, but once the window manager is up and I have an xterm, the modifier map is wrong. It looks like the keysym command survives, but something moves that second Control_L back to the Lock modifer. -- To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to debian-user-requ...@lists.debian.org with a subject of "unsubscribe".
