Hello Alex

The problem has been solved. Thx. for your input!

Now I managed to find and edit ~/.Xmodmap via Kate.
But in the mean time I again tried out Calc while the ч stays at the =
key. Now, the problem has been solved somehow. I only need to change
via one left-win key to the USA alt.intl. keyboard in order to
correctly work with calc. This is OK for me.

This is useful info anyway!

Respectfully yours,
