Maybe. Or *hopefully*! I've got a few lines in my ~/.Xresources
file but haven't touch it in years. Another thing along this
line involves using FBSD from the boot-up screem--the console.
It's slightly difficult for me to reach ESC so I have both the
DEL key and the Left Alt key mapped to be ESC. But only running
X. When I'm rebooting or down to single-user and I hit L-Alt
from vi, Zip.
What's the magic .key*FOO* file that remaps from the console?
Not to whine Too much, but god, it's been a long century!
