I'm using the standard modifier as I have no ~/.xmonad directory (neither
on the linux box nor the solaris box). The output of xmodmap -pm is this:
xmodmap: up to 2 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):
shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e)
lock Caps_Lock (0x42)
control Control_L (0x25), Control_R (0x6d)
mod1 Alt_L (0x40)
mod2 Mode_switch (0x71)
mod3 Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod4 Meta_L (0x73), Meta_R (0x74)
Seems ok to me...
Any other ideas what I can try?
