At a minimum, find some way to reassign the modifier keys so that they are

If you expect Emacs to change that, you're deluded: you need to look at
your keyboard config instead.


I can do this via the Keytweak Program in a msw environment. How do I do the same thing in Linux? Is there something that redefines the modifier keys at a system level? (i.e so that they would work as described above even in a terminal session? It seems that Linux should have the capability to reconfigure a vanilla keyboard to work in this fashion:

bottom key row -- super alt ctrl <space bar> ctrl alt super hyper

This would go part way toward making modifier sequences more ergonomically feasible.
