Hello,

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:

Code:
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


Quote:
keysym 0xff7e, Mode_switch


This is the strange thing. Why is the keysym "Mode_switch" and not "ALT_R"?

If I change it with
Code:
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,
