Full Version: Mapping Alt To The Menu Key
OESF Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Distro Support and Discussion > pdaXrom
I'm using RC12.

I'd like to map Alt to the Menu key, not to Address.

However when you go to Input Settings, you don't have the Menu Key as an option, though all other keys - Calendar..., are present.

How can I do this? xmodmap?
Hmmm... xmodmap in itself doesn't seem to work for this.

I added the following line to /etc/X11/kb/corgi.xmodmap_us
keycode 37 = Alt_R

And it works as Alt when depressed, however for Alt+Tab combination for cycling between apps it doesn't work, since when I press the key now and hold it, it executes Alt and thus pops the app's menu, but doesn't wait for the Tab, to cycle between apps.

What is the solution?
have you added Alt_R to mod1?
ie in the end of xmodmap
add mod1 = Alt_L Alt_R
