Problem with "alt" key (strongly suspect Fluxbox)
Edit: OK, I no longer think the problem is with X. See the post below for more info.
I just finished reinstalling linux on my Toshiba Satellite 1130/1135 laptop and reconfigured X (I didn't save my old xorg.conf file). After I did this, my "alt" key won't work after I boot up X (though I can still hit ctrl+alt+F1 to drop to the VC and alt+Fx to switch between VCs). This is very annoying as I have a lot of keyboard shortcuts that depend on the "alt" key, and I don't like having to use the mouse so much. Any help would be much appreciated. (Also, FYI, the 1130/1135 has a really strange keyboard, though I don't think this is the problem, since everything worked just fine on my previous installation).
Here is the part of my xorg.conf that deals with the keyboard.
Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86" #this was originally "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
