I've been trying to get DWM and Xorg for my desktop environment

when attempting startx or xinit I get a rather confusing error:
the xkeyboard keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports: internal error: could not resolve keysym xf86fullscreen

the information I've found online about this error isnt very helpful or, I'm just not understanding it.

getting this close to the finish line kinda bumming me out

any help appreciated, thanks.

I doubt this error is fatal, there is something else wrong. You better look at your Xorg log.
