look with 'xmodmap' what is defined.
I just did a xmodmap on the HP system and got the following:
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 Num_Lock (0x4d) mod3 mod4 Super_L (0x73), Super_R (0x74) mod5 ISO_Level3_Shift (0x71)
What bothers me is the missing mod3 modifier. And the following command seems to be a no-op, executed either remote (HP) or locally (Linux): xmodmap -e "add mod3 = Alt_R"
i guess you have a keymap-remote (what ever name) that does not define the keys.
How do I create such a beast? I have no idea what that is, maybe it could help. Btw. I do not call xmodmap from my .profile.
Thanks for your answer Dieter

From: Dieter Wörz Dieter.Woerz@T-Systems.com Subject: [suse-xfree86] ALT-GR no longer working with xterm running on H Date: 03/18/04 16:03
I am trying to run an xterm on an HP-UX 11 box. Before upgrading my Linux from Suse 7.3 to 8.2 it worked without any problem. After the upgrade, the characters accessed via the ALT-GR key are only accessible by cut-and-paste in the remote xterm. The problem seems to be that the mod3 modifier is not defined any more and that the ALT_R key does not exist any more and therefore cannot be mapped to the mod3 modifier.
Does anybody know, how I can get the ALT_R back, so the xterm on HP-UX works again properly?
Thanks in advance
