right alt key and kde

I finally got around to investigating why my right alt key doesn't
work as expected.  xev shows my left alt key as "keycode 64 (keysym
0xffe9, Alt_L)" and my right alt key as "keycode 113 (keysym 0xfe03,
ISO_Level3_Shift)" so obviously it's intentional.

I found other people asking questions about it, but I didn't turn up
any answers other than how to fix it in gnome.  Such as posts like

In KDE, I can go into System Settings, Keyboard, Keyboard Shorcuts,
Modifier Keys tab, and see the mapping, but cannot modify it there.

What is the appropriate way to fix this behavior?  I could just do an
xmodmap of course, but I'd rather fix it at the point where it is
being configure this way rather than something that's fixed each time
I log in...

Any suggestions or linkage appreciated...  Thanks!
