Once again: alt as my meta key
When I boot my Jessie it brings me, as desired, to a bash
command line prompt (no X at this stage of the game).
If I then launch the jed editor (or emacs -nw) from that prompt,
pressing Alt-x on the keyboard, produces the M-x prompt where
jed wants it.
I then can enter startx and arrive in my desired icewm
X desktop, I can then launch an xterm and, in it, jed, or emacs.
But only Esc-x on the keyboard produces the wanted M-x prompt
Somewhere, somehow X (xorg, to be more precise) has eaten my
M-x. Can anyone help me get my Meta key -- Alt -- back?
