    Xah> Did you customize your emacs?

No, that hasn't got anything to do with emacs. It is a question of
keyboard drivers and X11 keymaps. I did not change anything
related to keys in emacs.
I even have super and Hyper keys by the way.

    Xah> Also, what keyboard and OS are you on?
It is a cherry linux keyboard and the OS is FreeBSD.
But as I already said, it hasn't got anything to do with that. It
is merely a question of setting up the right keyboard drivers and
layouts and you have your keys as you like them in any application
not just emacs.
