I have setup my Emacs iwth EXWM.  I am trying to remap several keys to

startup files.  After several days of research, I discovered that
xmodmap only works when I have pressed atleast one key in my keyboard.
Any solutions?

I started looking at this, following your email, and came across the following:

This swaps the ctrl key with the capslock key. This could possibly be expanded to cover other changes (I am not sure what others you are looking at).

Using the keyboard-layout option should mean your changes are working in the different virtual terminals as well as any X session.
