Maybe. Or *hopefully*! I've got a few lines in my ~/.Xresources file but haven't touch it in years. Another thing along this line involves using FBSD from the boot-up screem--the console. It's slightly difficult for me to reach ESC so I have both the DEL key and the Left Alt key mapped to be ESC. But only running X. When I'm rebooting or down to single-user and I hit L-Alt from vi, Zip. What's the magic .key*FOO* file that remaps from the console?
