I have surfing around the WWW and searched for a solution of my problem, but nothing helped me.
The problem is, that I cant use the "ALT GR" key. And I need it, because I have a german keyboard layout.
If I rund xev I get the following:
|KeyRelease event, serial 40, synthetic NO, window 0x1400001,
root 0x15a, subw 0x0, time 288014, (-684,961), root:(678,991),
state 0x10, keycode 108 (keysym 0xff7e, Mode_switch), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False
|keysym 0xff7e, Mode_switch |
This is the strange thing. Why is the keysym "Mode_switch" and not "ALT_R"?
If I change it with
|xmodmap -e "keysym Mode_switch = Alt_R" |
"ALT GR" is working, but the left "ALT+TAB" for switching the windows is not working anymore.
I hope you have a solution for me.
Thanks in advance and best regards,
