you are welcome and my apologies. i did not mention 'man xorg.conf'. it list
what you can do with 'x configs' and you can work from it to set up a lot of
what does not get done by default. also note last section 'see also'.

i knew that there were configs in 'keyboard.desktop', but i am a 'kde bigot'
so i do not install gnome. therefore, i do not have problems with gnome.

i have found using 'locate [searchword]|less' to be very helpful. when
it is very long, i add in a few '|grep -v [minusword]' to cut down what
is found. i save a lot of locates in a directory '/home/users/found/'
and often find my self looking back into it. it is also linked as
'/home/geo/found/' and on my desktop to get to quick and easy.
