I'm using Linux Mint 18.3. My keyboard has a nonsensical key setup where I have an extra
\ key right before the right alt, and I keep using it by mistake. Since I don't need the
\ key there at all, I decided to remap it to an extra alt with this command:
xmodmap -e "keycode 94 = ISO_Level3_Shift"
This seems to work, but not quite. The "proper" right alt button allows me to write capital letters with either
Alt+Shift, as long as both buttons are pressed down. E.g. to write
Ó, I could either press
Alt+Shift+o. However, the new remapped key works only with
Alt+Shift. Needless to say, if my muscle memory was OK with this, I wouldn't be writing this question.
So, is it possible to fully remap an arbitrary key as right alt and make it work for
