Background: Running Arch Linux on KDE. KDE shortcuts have a problem with being saved past reboot so i'm using xmodmap and xbindkeys.
So I am using xmodmap. Right now caps lock is mapped to meta (hyper_L) which is assigned to Mod4 (along with Super). I am trying to use the meta shortcut (meta+c) that I've assigned to open chromium. While it works while I'm focused on some applications (like settings), in terminal it simply types c. When i changed the shortcut to ctl+9, it worked.
How do I use meta shortcuts in terminal (terminator)?
How can I map caps lock to two modifiers (either ctl+shift, ctl+super, or ctl+alt) as opposed to just being mapped to one modifier? And do you have a recommendation on what combo would be best for custom shortcuts as not to interfere with most other shortcuts?
My .xmodmap looks like this:
clear Lock clear Mod4 add Mod4 = Super_L Super_R Hyper_L keycode 66 = Hyper_L
and xmodmap yields:
shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e) lock control Control_L (0x25), Control_R (0x69) mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Alt_R (0x6c), Meta_L (0xcd) mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d) mod3 mod4 Super_L (0x85), Super_R (0x86), Super_L (0xce), Hyper_L (0xcf) mod5 ISO_Level3_Shift (0x5c), Mode_switch (0xcb)
