I'm using the german Macintosh version fo the Logitec K750 and everything works fine but unfortunatly the < and the ^ keys are interchanged.

I tried to use the keyTouch-Editor to fix this and build a new file for my keyboard but is was unable to activate this. Furthermore I only found the Editor but not keytouch itself in the Software Center neither via apt-get

How can I change the two keys to a normal behaviour and btw. is it possible to make the left alt key behave like the right one?

Update: I tried the answers from How can I change what keys on my keyboard do? (How can I create custom keyboard commands/shortcuts?) but without succes. I hope someone can guide me on how to

  1. swap < and ^ keys
  2. make left alt behave the same as right alt

I found a partial answer myself: To change < and ^ I added the following lines to the file ~/.Xmodmap

keycode 49 = less greater bar
keycode 94 = dead_circumflex degree notsign

Unfortunately these changes get lost after a reboot/logout and I have to call xmodpad ~/.Xmodmap again. How can I make this automatically happen?

    You can use that command as a startup script in ~/.profile I think maybe
