Yes, I've used xmodmap.  I tried this:

xmodmap -e "add control = Super_R"

and it works at most circumstances but Emacs.  :-(
For emacs, super is still the super but not include in control,
while my browser, my terminal and any other program I use consider
that Super_R is one of control group.

So, I think it is a problem of emacs and could only be solved
under emacs own.  And if I need add a translation for every key
combination I want, it's insane, I'm afraid.


Simple is the best.  ;-)
