Lee, does xmodmap work if you invoke it manually, just not when used at
startup? Awhile back I had a problem where my xmodmap command wasn't
working right at startup, though that was with GNOME, not Xfce. I ended
up hacking around the problem as follows:
1. create a shell script that invokes xmodmap. Mine looked like this:
# It seems that the keyboard mapping gets (re)set after this if it
# runs immediately, so add a pause.
2. Add an entry to the Application Autostart list that runs your
