I have tried remapping ctrl + alt to altgr via xbindkeys, but it does not seem to work. Is there a way I can do this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Jobin, notice that xmodmap shoudln't be used anymore, so the correct way is to use the control-settings configuration tool like in askubuntu.com/a/432985/16395 . xmodmap works only sporadically and got reset every time you change the layout. See the links in my answer in askubuntu.com/a/423245/16395 : I had no time to play with it to find the correct command-line invocation... –  Rmano Mar 17 '14 at 15:32
Please explain how you tried. How can we help you if we don't know what you did? Include the .xmodmaprc file you used for example and tell us all commands you ran to attempt this. –  terdon Mar 17 '14 at 15:55
