Re: [gdm-list] working around a broken shift key

Brian Cameron napsal(a):

If you put such calls in the /etc/X11/gdm/Init or /etc/X11/gdm/PreLogin
scripts, that might work.

On Debian Etch, /etc/X11/gdm/PreSession works just fine.




Is there a way to set up a global xmodmap that works for gdm?

I'm trying to work around a broken shift key (it gets stuck in the down position), so I'm using

xmodmap -e "clear shift"
xmodmap -e "add shift = Shift_L"

in my users' .xinitrc

The problem is that if the shift key gets stuck on the login prompt, noone can log in....

So I need to turn it off for gdm as well.

I've tried adding the above lines in


but it seems that it fails as X isn't running yet.

So... Where do I put the above lines so that they take effect with gdm as well?

Linux stuff has made big progress over the competition. When things sit and don't start right away, we have a watch, and those poor guys have to settle for an hourglass.
