In X11, modifiers have two names: there's the "Sym" name associated with
the key, and then there's the mapping to which Sym name is used for
which modifier bit.

Remapping key names ("Sym"s) is not sufficient to change the modifier to
which they're associated (or to mark them as a modifier).

So, check the output of "xmodmap", which will probably show that your
"Meta_L" is mapped to the "mod5" modifier, which is traditionally
interpreted as "hyper", tho IIRC this mapping between modifier bits and
the corresponding name is more subtle and not completely standardized.

Emacs <META> is usually Alt on modern mainstream systems (see
M-: (info "(emacs) User Input")).

Do you get the results you want in Emacs if you map that left logo key
to Alt instead of to KDE's idea of Meta?

Hi,

I've a MicroSoft keyboard (german layout) and want the left Win key
to be Meta and the left Alt to be Alt. To achieve this I used KDE's
system settings for input devices (advanced options). After I changed
the settings xev reports the left Win key as Meta and also all Qt/KDE
programs do. But in Emacs left Win key gives me Hyper and left Alt
gives me Meta.

With setxkbmap -query I get:

rules:      evdev
model:      microsoftprousb
layout:     de
options:    caps:hyper,altwin:left_meta_win

If I change the settings for caps lock to be e. g. the compose key Emacs
works as expected.


Cheers,
Andre
