Im trying to find how to something like :

Control+z="<" Control+x=">"

Is this possible? my keyboard doesnt have the ISO missing key that in Portuguese matches the <> key.

the keycode for <> key is 94, being that without shift is <(less) and with shift pressed is >(greater)

the keycode for control left is 37, Control_L the keycode for z is 52 and for x is 53.

How can i do this using xmodmap:

xmodmap -e "keycode 37 + keycode 52 = less" xmodmap -e "keycode 37 + keycode 53 = greater"

  • I was trying to map my "/" to "~" and "shift+/" to "?", but xmodmap -e "keycode 50 + keycode 61 = question" just remaped the left shift to "?", but this worked: xmodmap -e "keycode 61 = asciitilde question", askubuntu.com/a/855674/46437 – Aquarius Power Nov 3 '17 at 22:25

I suggest you use xmacro instead, it seemed to work in this similar question:
