I have troubles with my keyboard, AltGr key.
As a workaround i can execute a command manually after system booting.

How can I automate it in Gentoo?

I was trying to create a executeable file with .start extension in /etc/local.d/ but it doesnt work.

The command I need on bootup is simply:
Code:
setxkbmap -option lv3:ralt_switch_multikey



How to get execute during boot?
thx

To make it persistent, change it in your selected DE settings.
Or, add the command to your $home/.profile

Entry in bash_profile didnt execute the command

Code:
# /etc/skel/.bash_profile

# This file is sourced by bash for login shells.  The following line
# runs your .bashrc and is recommended by the bash info pages.
if [[ -f ~/.bashrc ]] ; then
        . ~/.bashrc
fi

setxkbmap -option lv3:ralt_switch_multikey

Put this in the keyboard section of your xorg.conf:
Code:
Option "xkb_options" "lv3:ralt_switch_multikey"

This does, in fact, work so long as:
  1. The local service is in your default runlevel.
  2. Your /etc/local.d/*.{start,stop} files are executable.

The /etc/skel/* files are placed into the home directory of a newly created user. The existing ones aren't updated. So you also need to update your ~/.bash_profile, if not already done.

Depending on your configuration, the xinit script is loaded using bash... or not. /bin/sh is not /bin/bash. So ~/.profile is better than ~/.bash_profile in your case. And ~/.xprofile is even more appropriate, as you only need the setxkbmap tune in X.
