Function modifiers in Emacs conflicts with many hotkeys I have (for example, conflicts with i3wm). By using evil I could use evil to avoid most of conflict hotkeys.
However, I do still need to use those function modifiers to use, for example,
M-x, but it conflicts with other hotkeys. (For Emacs keymap,
ESC can be used. But now
ESC is used by evil, and is no longer a meta substitute.)
What I want to achieve is in normal mode,
; acts as
alt, the meta key.
I tried the following but none of them worked:
(define-key evil-normal-state-map (kbd "'") 'event-apply-meta-modifier) (define-key evil-normal-state-map (kbd "'") 'meta)
Any ideas how to achieve that?
