[SOLVED] startx outputs many "Could not resolve keysym XF86" warnings

I start my dwm window manager with "exec startx" in my ~/.zprofile

Everything works, but I see a lot of harmless warning messages in my tty.

There're hundreds of warnings, I only post some of them.

Please use "code" tags, not "quote" tags.

I see a lot of harmless warning messages

So?

If it's just annoying you, redirect "exec startx > /dev/null 2>&1"

yes, I find the warnings annoying.

After reading the link you provided, I guess I'll just redirect the warnings.

Thanks.

I have faced a similar issue twice. I am using the XMonad window manager and each time a *haskell* package gets updated, the startx fails. I resolved the issue by recompiling my window manager, and then rebooting. In my case it was:

xmonad --recomplie

This has absolutely nothing to do w/ this topic.
The xkb errors are annoying but won't prevent X11 from starting.

You want to look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xmonad … ter_update
