Here's a simple howto on using your windows menu key as a modifier. The windows menu key is the key to the right of the right windows key.

I had a lot of trouble trying to figure this out, so I figured I'd try to make it easier for others :P

Put this in ~/.Xmodmap:
Code:
keycode 117 = F14
add Mod5 = F14


and this in ~/.xinitrc:

Code:
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap &


The menu key will be bound to Mod5, which you can use in your applications as a modifier.

YES!!! now I can use that Windows Key for something useful... I was actually thinking of popping it off the other day and cementing up the keyhole.
