I'm playing around with keyboard settings, and wanted to remap my windows keys to tab, for convenience. So I tried (133 is the left super key on my keyboard)
xmodmap -e "keycode 133 = Tab Super_L"
but this didn't work, in that hitting the windows key still brings up the "windows" menu, and no tab is inserted. A few different variations on the same theme also didn't work, e.g. making the Tab happen on shift+super.
I'm using cinnamon (installed from a ppa on ubuntu 16.04) and lightdm, and I imagine that the windows/super key is being intercepted at a lower level, which xmodmap can't quite deal with...is there any way of achieving what I want? Answers not involving xmodmap are welcome!
(I'm far from an expert, so perhaps there's a very easy solution...)
