Re: Trouble binding Alt *by itself* to the execute-extended-command...(Alt-x and ESC-x work fine.)

Thank you all for your help. I finally got it.
In Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS with Emacs 23.3.1 I did the following:
1. Remap Alt keys to the menu key...
xmodmap -e "keycode 64 = Menu"
xmodmap -e "keycode 108 = Menu"
2. Store that permanently...
xmodmap -pke > ~/.Xmodmap
echo "xmodmap .Xmodmap in" > ~/.xinitrc
That should work since the menu key runs execute-extended-command already.
I personally wanted to add some stuff before and after running
execute-extended-command so I added this to my .emacs ...
(global-set-key (kbd "<menu>") (lambda () (interactive)
....extra commands here...
....extra commands here...))
It seems there is almost nothing Emacs can't do!
