  Unfortunately any X-based solution may conflicts with modifier using
of the Win key.
  The same problem exists for keyboard layout switching. For example, if
I bind RCtrl key for layout switching, then any applications
Ctrl-hotkeys not works.
  For local only using I solve this problem by polling the local
keyboard state. Very simple sources You may found here:
