I designed a keyboard layout for myself, after I run xmodmap it works OK, but after standby or reboot, the layout turn back to qwerty.
How can I set it as default? My OS is Debian Wheezy with Xfce4.

I use Colemak for English layout and standard Korean layout. If I were to use Qwerty and Korean, it works out of the box. I can switch between layouts by pressing Shift+Space with the default Samsung keyboard.
So I basically followed this thread's instruction to get Colemak to work.
My keyboard (HP bluetooth keyboard), however, does not generate a separate .kl file in the keylayout folder.
When I installed Gnome and Gdm, they shared the same keyboard layouts after I set them (mt, fr(oss)).Than I customised one of the layouts and this layout got temporarily disabled. Logging out re-enabled the layout but gdm added another layout (en). This doesn't bother me much but I have to check every time if the correct keyboard layout is selected.
