Re: thinkpad t42 number lock/number pad problem
Thanks. Unfortunately, though, something about that failed to solve
either problem -- or, rather, it created another problem that made it
impossible to test. Creating $HOME/.xmodmap as described and also, as
root, creating /etc/X11/Xsession.d/40xcustom_load-xmodmap caused me to
be unable to log in as a user. Root could still log in for some
reason, but not the user. The culprit seems to be the
40xcustom_load-xmodmap file. At least, removing .xmodmap from the user
home directory didn't prevent startx from failing while removing the
/etc/X11... file returned things to normal.
Perhaps the version of X11 with my installation is different.
