Hi there...
I have a problem with the {[]} keys... The keyboard is international
(or Norwegian, in particular) and these keys are mapped on a key
"Alt Gr" to the right of the space bare combined with 7, 8, 9 and 0.
This works fine in all other applications, but not Mathematica.

This document,

specifies two solutions, but for me, non of them works.
The XMathematica-modification doesn't help, and the xmodmap-solution
breaks almost everything. Unfortunately, I don't really grasp the
workings of xmodmap, so I have difficulties understanding how to
overcome the problem using that solution, although I imagine it
would be possible.

Does anybody have a quicker fix than actually digging into xmodmap?
If so,

eternally gratefully,

Jens Olav Nygaard
