I use this method for my german keyboard layout and it works like a charm ...

I even modified the file to match my natural keyboard ...

You can find an app at VersionTracker fixing this in an elegant way.

As the Product Description says:
X11 Launcher may be of some use to people like me with a non-US keyboard who want to use the just released (as of 01/10/2003) Apple X11 beta. It allows selecting the desired keyboard layout for X11, as well as giving some extra command line parameters. This app should become obsolete quickly, as Apple improve its application. The source code is available.

Try the instructions at http://www.cse.ogi.edu/~dylan/dvorak/Xdvorak.html . Just don't put the keyboard layout files in /tmp but use a more permanent folder. Works great for me.

I also just noticed that /etc/X11/xinitrc (no period there) seems to be a basic .xinitrc to use. I copied it to ~ and made some modifications so that it xmodmap's my keyboard (I renamed my dvorak keyboard to .Xmodmap and it uses it by default) and didn't start the various apps listed at the end of the file. Oh, and I had it start up quartz-vm too.

Or is this file in /etc/X11 meant for something else?
