There is a workaround for X.
"xmodmap -pke > .xmodmap"
in your home directory.
Than edit the file ".xmodmap" by exchanging the line
"keycode 156 = XF86Launch1 NoSymbol XF86Launch1 NoSymbol XF86Launch1"
"keycode 156 = ISO_Level3_Shift NoSymbol ISO_Level3_Shift NoSymbol ISO_Level3_Shift".
Now the AltGr-key is working fine until you reboot the system.
To make it stable you can use
Simply add "xmodmap .xmodmap" as startup command.
Note: This workaround only deals with X!
I tried the analog workaround using "loadkeys" before I found this workaround, but it failed.
The key press event was proceeded Ok, so I was able to write "@". But after releasing the "AltGr" key every key behaves still as in third level.
This is what I did:
> keycode 148 = AltGr
What is wrong about that?
