I've remapped my spacebar to alt and viceversa since my spacebar is failing me lately. Anyway everything seems to work just fine, I saved my setup using xmodmaps, then I load it on startup. Well the excanged key setup works.. only in terminal. When I run browser like chrome, some kind of text editor or anything else - it does not work.

why does this happen? I run simple .sh script loading my xmodmaps config on startup, perhaps thath's the problem? If it's then how should I run it ?
