Make the Alt key work in OpenOffice103 and X11Beta3
Authored by: stib on Jul 09, '03 08:51:36PM
When I went to modify my .xinitrc file I found that I didn't already have one. Adding one with just
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
in it cause X11 to go a bit spazzy on me - my openoffice windows didn't have the usual OSX frames around them, which made them un-draggable. Deleting the file brought everything back to normal. Any hints about what I need to put in my .xinitrc file to make everything sweet again?

If you don't have an .xinitrc, Apple's X11 is hard-coded to launch the Quartz window manager (quartz-wm) and bring up an xterm. If you supply an .xinitrc, however, you must do this yourself. Your .xinitrc should look something like this:

xmodmap $HOME/.Xmodmap
exec quartz-wm
