Change DidJiX behavior

You have installed DidJiX, us version, on your nice external usb hard drive but all your keybaords are AZERTY!
It's just an example because there's a french version of DidJix :-)
You have changed the /root/.bash_profile and /root/.xinitrc but all these changes are lost at reboot!
Yes, it's a live system and these files are, in fact, modified in memory :-(
And you would like to have an xterm started with Mixxx!
I don't know why but why not ;-)

So what?
Remember that a second partition was automatically created by DidJiX at the first boot and that it's available through /mnt/Mixxx/Musics...

From Mixxx, switch to the second console with Ctrl Alt F2 keys and type the following commands.

 echo loadkeys fr > /mnt/Mixxx/Musics/.bashrc
 echo setxkbmap fr > /mnt/Mixxx/Musics/.xinitrc
 echo "xterm &" > /mnt/Mixxx/Musics/.openrc

Now switch back to the first console with Ctrl Alt F1 keys, quit Mixxx with Ctrl q (not yet french...) keys and restart it with the Ctrl c keys at prompt... It's ok? :-)

Reboot DidJiX... Always ok? :-)

  1. .bashrc will operate on console at bash login, .xinitrc will load during X initialisation and .openrc will run at OpenBox session.
