I was running an R7.4 system with a custom xmodmap file for my ATI remote wonder. I used this post to configure the system to load the xmodmap:

I upgraded to R8 today and see that it has a different window manager. Could someone tell me how to do with equivalent step of modifying the /home/mythtv/.fluxbox/apps file so I can load my xmodmap file?

I apologize for taking so long to respond; I wanted to wait until the wildcard games were done before messing with my system.

I didn't check, but I suspect that the 1.local file would get executed before X started, so I didn't try there. Instead, similar to the R7 .fluxbox/app file, I found the file that starts mythfrontend on R8 and modified it. I used this post for reference

There are some other X related calls in the /etc/X11/Sessions/LinHES script, so I just added my xmodmap call with them.
xhost +local:
xhost +
xset -dpms s off
xmodmap /home/mythtv/.xmodmap-atiremote

I know this is not the right place to put a customization and it will probably be overwritten during a future upgrade, but this gets me going again. I'd like to now spend some time figuring out custom remotes so I don't keep struggling with this remote during each upgrade.

Thanks for your help.

LinHes will also run any program located in the dir /etc/X11/autostart

So you could have created the file
/etc/X11/autostart/xmodmap and placed the startup commands in there.
