My explanations on how to change XKB settings. Note also that applications should not do line breaking under certain conditions, such as before a question mark, even after a normal space (as ...

There are a bajillion answers on the internet, most of them confusing. The key is you need to map 'keycode 66' to your hyper key, remove the mapping of that key from other mod{1,2,4,5}'s (only if present), and then set mod3. Open ~/.Xmodmap and put the following: ! Unmap capslock clear Lock keycode 66 = Hyper_L ! Leave mod4 as windows key _only_ remove ...

I have tried to make a proper patch for this bug. It is a problem in the kernel rather than with the keyboard, although it could be argued that the keyboard behave in a strange way.
