Openbox overwrites xmodmap configuration

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am setting up openbox on my laptop running Linux Mint 13. I want my Caps Lock key to act as an additional control key. I put the required settings in my ~/.Xmodmap file and checked it by running xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap It works correctly. However when I relogin to my openbox session, these key changes are not present. Running the above xmodmap command gets it working again, but I want it to happen automatically at startup. What's interesting is that I added a test zenity command as following to my ~/.config/openbox/autostart file zenity --info --text=Hello This produces a small dialog win (HowTos)
