Thank you for your response.

I think what you're looking for is xinit(1).  My own:

$ cat ~/.xinitrc
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

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

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"
