I do not know how to test it.  Have tried xev, but it is not returning me any

Now, I have decided to swap the Alt(Meta)-Key with the Ctrl-Key.  And use
the Caps-Lock for the Hyper.  But having problems.

This is the information I have

xmodmap -pke | grep "Control\|Alt\|Meta\|Hyper\|Super"
keycode  37 = Control_L NoSymbol Control_L
keycode  64 = Alt_L Meta_L Alt_L Meta_L
keycode 105 = Control_R NoSymbol Control_R
keycode 108 = Alt_R Meta_R Alt_R Meta_R
keycode 133 = Hyper_L NoSymbol Hyper_L
keycode 134 = Hyper_R NoSymbol Hyper_R
keycode 204 = NoSymbol Alt_L NoSymbol Alt_L
keycode 205 = NoSymbol Meta_L NoSymbol Meta_L
keycode 206 = NoSymbol Super_L NoSymbol Super_L
keycode 207 = NoSymbol Hyper_L NoSymbol Hyper_L

xmodmap -pm
xmodmap:  up to 4 keys per modifier, (keycodes in parentheses):

shift       Shift_L (0x32),  Shift_R (0x3e)
lock        Caps_Lock (0x42)
control     Control_L (0x25),  Control_R (0x69)
mod1        Alt_L (0x40),  Alt_R (0x6c),  Meta_L (0xcd)
mod2        Num_Lock (0x4d)
mod4        Hyper_L (0x85),  Hyper_R (0x86),  Super_L (0xce),  Hyper_L (0xcf)
mod5        ISO_Level3_Shift (0x5c),  Mode_switch (0xcb)

And here is what I have written

clear mod4

keycode 37 = Alt_L Meta_L Alt_R Meta_R
keycode 105 = Alt_L Meta_L Alt_R Meta_R

add mod4 = Alt_L Meta_L Alt_R Meta_R

!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!! Set Ctrl-Key to position of Alt(Meta)-Key

keycode 64 = Control_L NoSymbol Control_L
keycode 108 = Control_R NoSymbol Control_R
