I read this list archive backwards and there are a lot of posts about
the german keymap under X using the Linux_Keycodes.
I found the messages from Florent Pillet <Florent.Pillet@wanadoo.fr> who
said that is something missing in the xkb file for french users.
Namely this:

	and just after this line:

	    name[Group1]= "FR-1";

		key <LALT> { 
	        symbols[Group1] = [ Mode_switch, Multi_key ],
		virtualMods = AltGr

I've done this for my german file de, and the alt key worked as wanted.

Don't CC me, I am subscribed.
