Xmodmap screw up and Xorg bug?

I reverted the changes and it seemed that it had solved the problem, however, now every time I boot up my pc the Xorg is still using 21-23% of the CPU. What solves this is logging off and in, which is a little bit time consuming. How can I diagnose and solve this?

My laptop keyboard's Escape, F1 and F2 keys don't work, so I was trying to remap the keys /, * and - of the numeric keypad to solve the problem. I Was following this page on the wiki, but after I executed the command xmodmap .Xmodmap the keyboard wouldn't work. I then turned off the computer (not very smart, I know) by pressing the power button, the system turns on normally but becomes very slow after logging in, the Xorg process was using 23% of the cpu and the keyboard still didn't work.

For reference, this is the Escape key in the .Xmodmap file:

keycode 9 = Escape NoSymbol Escape

And this is the / key of the numpad after I modified it:

keycode 106 = Escape Escape Escape Escape Escape Escape XF86Ungrab Escape Escape XF86Ungrab

The "XF86Ungrab" was there before, so I did not change it, I only changed "KP_Divide" to "Escape"

I'm currently logged in the root user, I need help to at least revert the keys to normal, but if you could point to me how to properly remap the necessary keys I'd appreciate a lot!

Try to reset it with setxkbmap -layout us

After trying this in a few different ways it solved the problem, thank you!
I'm still looking for how to properly set the key bindings, if you or anyone else could help me.



Should do it.

I'll try it after solving the Xorg thing, thanks!

I found out that the problem is having a .Xmodmap file, it causes the Xorg bug. This also caused a problem with my mouse driver, ckb-next, but simply reinstalling the software solved the problem.
