Well, I finally resorted to KDM. On boot the user is auto logged in to
I've mapped special keys on the keyboard using /etc/X11/Xmodmap e.g: I have a
key named close on the keyboard and it is mapped to F20. and in WindowMaker's
menu I've attached ALT-F20 to the command "sudo halt".
The problem is that on 1st login (the auto login) the keys are not mapped.
only after I logout and login again using a password, the keys are mapped
correctly, as if KDM isn't using Xmodmap on autologin.
Any ideas ?
