I want to re-map AltGr so I can navigate without having to use the arrow keys.

AltGr + l =

AltGr + p =


I've looked around and I can't find any examples that resembles what I want to do. Most people who use Xmodmap just want to re-map a single modifier key. And the Man page wasn't of much help.

And with AutoKey it doesn't seem to be possible to set any of the alt-keys as hot keys.

Same thing there. Just for re-mapping a single key if I understand it correctly. –  uvasal Aug 6 '13 at 18:15
