i can say that it started to work again, but i say also that its
behavior its strange:
Alt_L: i can switch between applications, by Alt_L + Tab
Alt_R + Tab: i cannot
Alt_L: i can access menus of applications
Alt_R: i can !
Alt_L: i can access the i-th tab of firefox by Alt_L + i
Alt_R: i cannot
the actual output (after the above modifications) of xmodmap is:
xmodmap: up to 3 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), Meta_L (0x9c)
mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod4 Super_L (0x7f), Hyper_L (0x80)
mod5 Mode_switch (0x5d), Alt_R (0x71), ISO_Level3_Shift (0x7c)
