[Bug 412635] [NEW] compiz won't recognize xmodmap changes


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I use a custom xmodmap to switch my Meta and Alt keys on my apple
aluminum keyboard,  and when I load my .xmodmap file with the new
keybindings,  compiz will not recognize those changes unless compiz
restarts.   In ubuntu, the only way I can seem to get compiz to restart
is by going to Appearance prefs,  then effects,  then select none, and
back to custom.

At the very least, it would be nice to have a cli command to allow me to
either restart compiz or (even better) tell compiz to re-load my xmodmap
settings.  Here's my xmodmap file in case it helps:

clear mod1
clear mod4
keycode 64 = Super_L
keycode 133 = Alt_L
keycode 134 = Alt_R
keycode 108 = Super_R
add mod1 = Alt_L
!add mod1 = Alt_R
add mod4 = Super_L
!add mod4 = Super_R
