I'm used to writing curly brackets using Left Shift + Left Alt + 7 or 0. As of right now I can only do them using the Right Alt + 7 or 0.

How do I configure my Left Alt + Left Shift to behave as Right Alt?

I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 on a macbook pro 2011. I've previously changed my Xmodmap to switch the Command key and Control Key (using this), and it looks as follows:

clear control
clear mod4

keycode 105 =
keycode 206 =

keycode 133 = Control_L NoSymbol Control_L
keycode 134 = Control_R NoSymbol Control_R
keycode 37 = Super_L NoSymbol Super_L

add control = Control_L
add control = Control_R
add mod4 = Super_L
