Xmodmap conflicting with keyboard shortcuts


Description fbe546 2014-05-10 22:10:00 CEST
As far as I understand, shortcuts like Alt+F4 (close a window), Alt+Tab (cycle windows), etc. are handled by Xfwm4.

They all work fine under my Xfce 4.10 under Xubuntu 14.04.

However, as soon as I want to remap keys using xmodmap, e.g.

xmodmap -e "keycode  77 = NoSymbol NoSymbol NoSymbol"

to deactivate the Numlock key, they completely stop working. The same happens if the above line is put in a file ~/.Xmodmap
