It's easy loading xmodmap settings prior to the window manager
and therefore independent of it, using the X startup file which
is ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession (or a "chain loader" of them).

	[ -f ~/.xmodmaprc ] && xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
	# other initialisation ...
	start fvwn2

However, the default key combination Ctrl+Alt+F<x> should work
without alteration in any window manager; at least it does in
the few I've tried.
