comment Gnome: Map AltGr key to Alt
Ok cracked it with xmodmap -e 'keycode 203 = NoSymbol Meta_L NoSymbol Meta_L NoSymbol Meta_L'. If anyone else is trying this your key might not be 203, look for the key which calls Mode_switch and change it to the above.

Ok I've now noticed a problem, gnome is behaving like the alt key is constantly pressed, when I hit v for example in nautilus it opens up the View menu.

Yes thanks alot, that nailed it! Are those changes persistent or will I loose them when I reboot?

Sorry there was a reboot between when I entered the commands and recorded the output of xmodmap, maybe the changes aren't persistent? Anyway I've entered the command again and now xmodmap look like this: shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e) lock Caps_Lock (0x42) control Control_L (0x25), Control_R (0x69) mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Meta_L (0xcd), Mode_switch (0xcb) mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d) mod3 mod4 Super_L (0xce), Hyper_L (0xcf) mod5 So the changes are showing, but if I still can't do CTRL-ALT-DEL in Gnome or use meta commands in emacs using AltGr.

The command worked and here is the output of the xmodmap: shift Shift_L (0x32), Shift_R (0x3e) lock Caps_Lock (0x42) control Control_L (0x25), Control_R (0x69) mod1 Alt_L (0x40), Meta_L (0xcd) mod2 Num_Lock (0x4d) mod3 mod4 Super_L (0xce), Hyper_L (0xcf) mod5 ISO_Level3_Shift (0x5c), Mode_switch (0xcb)

No that didn't work for me, fired up emacs and AltGr-v gives me “ instead of scrolling the page up as it would with alt-v.
