    xmodmap how to set automaticaly when startx

    Hello folks,

    Just installed debian woody on my machine and after many misadventures we are both getting on quite well apart from a few annoying little probs.

    Question for this thread is how do i get this command to run each time i startx

    xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 4 5"

    as without it my mouse wheel is all over the place.

    I have tried putting it in .xinitrc as well as putting

    'sleep 1 && exec' before it but no joy.

    Any ideas greatly appreciated.

    Why don't you just edit X's config file?

    Well finaly sorted it out. Was a case of sequencing in the .xinitrc file. Me like a fool though that because i had to typw xmodmap after X loaded thought that it should go into the .xinitrc at the end. Aparently not.
