The X Window front end has a dialog box that will display the current mappings for the Mod1 and Mod2 keys on your system. You can summon this dialog with the front end menu command: Help -> X Environment Information... Look in the subsection headed with "Keyboard Attributes". The entries for "Mod 1 KeySym" and "Mod 2 KeySym" should tell you what keys on your keyboard are playing the role of the modifier keys. If you do not like the current mapping of your modifier keys, you can change them with xmodmap or xkeycaps. -- P.J. Hinton Mathematica Programming Group paulh at wolfram.com Wolfram Research, Inc.
