MacBook Pro keyboard: ALT Key doesn't work properly

Hi to all the users!
In days I’m trying to figure out how to solve a problem that I have with OpenSUSE 13.2 and my MacBook Pro (**** Apple products!).
ALT Keys (both left and right) are not properly recognized, and they both function as “Level 3 Shift” instead of “ALT”, as a consequence, I cannot us some shortcuts (such us the one to open a tty). In Gnome 2 there was an option to assign the third level shift, in Gnome 3 I cannot find it anywhere, so I tried to edit the configuration files. I use the italian layout and I go to /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/it, I can clearly see that the line

include "level3(ralt_switch)"

is in the configuration file, and as far as I know, it should correct the problem, but the problem persists. I tried many solutions and made a lot of research in the internet, but I didn’t find anything.

Anyone here can help me?

Thanks in advance!

I think that maybe I wasn’t so clear… I just wanted to re-map L-Alt to behave like “Alt”, and not like “Level 3 Shift”.
It is possible?

Nobody can help? :frowning:

Hi to everybody,
I managed to change the behaviour of the key using xmodmap. Is there a way to make permanent the following commands?

xmodmap -e "keycode 64 = Alt_L"
xmodmap -e "keycode 108 = Alt_R"
