I really like this distro, just a little peculiarity. I post this to ask a question about it, but more so for the benefit of others who encounter the same.
I've noticed that Vector comes with ~/.Xmodmap predefined. I overwrote them as user with my own favorite settings. All well and good. But I noticed at some point during operating this old machine, that my shortkeys to Amarok died. With shortkeys I mean the Win-<z,x,c,v,b,etc.> combo's. Also, I have r-win as compose key for special characters <é,ä,ß, etc.>, a functionality that also died.
It took me quite some time to find out when, why and how. I wont bother you with the details of my search, as I'm not complaining... just curious.
I noticed the shortkeys died after su'ing to root in the konsole.
keycode 115 = F15
keycode 116 = F16
Commenting these out (or just bluntly deleting /root/.Xmodmap) solves the issue
, but at the same time raises a question. What special purpose did those keys have that I will now no longer be able to use? Having those keys predefined must have a reason.
Again, nice job on the distro guys and gals! I'm really impressed!
EDIT: Commenting out the lines or deleting the file I found leads to error of xmodmap itself when it gets called from .bashrc. Rather logical in hindsight. Either delete the lines in .Xmodmap, leaving the file to hold your favorite settings ;-). Or comment out or delete the line <xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap> in ~/.bashrc. Whichever works for you.
