Okay... I see you did read the manual. my bad
on mine (kindle) if I just run... xmodmap
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 (0x69)
mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Alt_R (0x6c), Meta_L (0xcd)
mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod4 Super_L (0xce), Hyper_L (0xcf)
mod5 ISO_Level3_Shift (0x5c), Mode_switch (0xcb)
so. assuming that you are creating a temporarily "fixed" or "corrected" mapping. what would happen if you then rebooted.... It would be wrong again? yes?
It's AGES since I did this.... but... try just running xmodmap
after a reboot, check the default mappings. Then run your command above and check they have been added.. then script the changes you need to be permanent.
I am NO expert in this area. I think I used this to remap the middle click on a touch to the left click for getting up blackbox menus.
