How do I map a key sequence to a specific character?


My problem is that my tilde key (above the tab) doesn't work. It's a mechanical issue, since it will work if I press the key hard enough (approximately 200 pounds of pressure required, give or take :-)

What I'd like to do is set up a key mapping, like ctrl-alt-t, that will output the tilde character just as if I pressed the tilde key itself. How can I do that? I'm using a Dell Latitude CPi laptop, Slackware, and Blackbox, BTW.

I've tried using xbindkeys, but with no luck.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.
