Re: gnome 2.6 -> no more .Xmodmap

My .Xmodmap looks like this:

keycode 0x48 =	aring		Aring
keycode 0x49 =	adiaeresis	Adiaeresis
keycode 0x4A =	odiaeresis	Odiaeresis

That is I map some typically Swedish characters on some function keys.
Anyone with an idea of how to achieve it now that Gnome complains about

An interesting observation is that loading the settings manually results
in only non-capitals. This used to work better!
