Hello, Thank you for your response.
I think what you're looking for is xinit(1). My own: $ cat ~/.xinitrc #!/bin/sh xmodmap .xmodmaprc xsetroot -solid dimgray xgamma -gamma 0.8 exec /usr/X11R6/bin/gnome-session
I forgot to explain that I do not start X manually with startx command. It is started on boot time by adding the following line in /etc/ttys: ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure I think that in this case ~/.xinitrc is not called.
Note also you can also define keyboard settings in rc.conf: $ grep keymap /etc/rc.conf keymap="us.iso.kbd.custom" My own custom keymap is a quick hack to swap the Caps_Lock key with Escape for non-X uses (something that only vi users would appreciate). Alternatively, KDE, like Gnome, etc. most likely offers a mechanism to execute scripts at startup, but I'd advise against that approach.
I googled a little bit about localizing FreeBSD and found that one can configure it in xorg.conf. In my case I add the following setting in the Keyboard section: Option "XkbLayout" "us,bg" Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle" Option "XkbVariant" ",phonetic" Regards Ivan -- Tangra Mega Rock: http://www.radiotangra.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
