Hey everyone.

All the meta shortcuts requiring Shift in emacs are not working. M^> (end-of-file) for exemple will instead trigger M^.
This is true in X and console.

This is not an emacs problem, probably keymap related.

I've been messing around with the keymap for a couple hours, got it working in the console once, but now it's gone. (don't remember what made it work Sad ).
It never worked in X though.

Any ideas why this is happening?

When running xev, Shift_R Shift_L Alt_L Alt_R are all working. If I do Alt_L + Shift_L I'm getting an ISO_Prev_Group, could this be the problem?

In my case it was a kde problem (or feature). I disabled the keyboard language switching via Alt-Shift between german and usa.

Hey seagull,

Your reply put me on the right track. Thank you.
I'm using Xfce, added the keyboard layout plugin in the panel, and disabled alt + shift for switching keyboard layouts.
Meta + Shift now works in emacs but only when running in X.

I would also like to make it work when in a terminal, any ideas?
