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?
