My enviroment file.
setxkbmap gb xmodmap /home/marshall/.Xmodmap
I used run xmodmap from ~/.config/openbox/autostart but that ceased to work after the openbox 3.5 upgrade. I then tried to run it from my .xinitrc file, this also fails to work as expected.
OK, I found it. The problem was "setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp" _after_ xmodmap! As I use setxkbmap just to recover the traditional Ctrl-Alt-Backspace behavior that Xorg developers decided to drop, it didn't occur to me that it might interact with xmodmap. I changed the places of both commands and it works now. It works regardless of whether it is run before the openbox binary (via environment file, or equivalent) or after openbox (via --startup flag). It is also independent of the fact that I'm using a non-standard setup.
