I've been working on apl code that will reset the X windows keyboard so that one may use the 'Windows' key as an additional shift key for the Functions an operators.

I've tested the attached workspace on Debian and Ubuntu with success. I'm hoping that some one will test other distributions. The code calls  setxkbmap so the first test is at the command line:

dalyw@andelot:~$ setxkbmap -query
rules:      evdev
model:      pc105
layout:     us

An example session:

      '∘∘∘∆∆∆∇∇∇'        ⍝ To test the windows key
      'jjjhhhggg'        ⍝ To test the windows key

This change survives the current session so )off has no effect nor does logging out.  Rebooting will reset X winodows and your keyboard mapping.

Please send me your results.
