I have a problem with meta key in Emacs. I trying to use M-> or M-< but in fedora meta key is left Alt that is key change layout (alt+shift) when i press M->(alt+shift+>). How people solve this problem? (Conflict key problem)

Well, considering the minimal information provided, it sounds like you should go into keyboard shortcut settings in Fedora and change the key combo to change layout to some other combo like Ctrl+Alt.
