I already know that it works with my default settings. It's only with my
own layout it doesn't work. The main reason for that is probably that my
own layout is the only one that use those keys for typing characters (with
AltGr).

Manjaro and I use a standard Swedish keyboard.

Yes, but can you then explain why it works in most other applications? It
works perfectly in all of the text editors I tried so far, for instance.
There are some difficulties with some web browsers, though. Firefox is the
one that works best in this aspect.

Yes, but you can't type with your arrow keys. I can. Except not in
LibreOffice. Here are what's on AltGr+<arrow keys> and AltGr+Shift+<arrow
keys>: ←↑↓→ ⬄↹↔⇨
When using AltGr+<arrowkey|enter|tab|insert|delete|home|end|page up|page
down>, LibreOffice seems to ignore AltGr completely, but not when using for
instance AltGr+c which types a ℃ character.

So if the problem is in my system, why does it work in some applications?
It shouldn't work at all then, should it?
As I said, it SEEMS like LibreOffice ignores AltGr if it's not combined
with a key that normally types some kind of character.

Then I would appreciate very much if somebody would help me finding out
what's wrong with my layout. I'll share my configurations to everyone who
asks for it. Not asking anyone to help with that, just saying I would
appreciate it.
Thanks for replying. ☺

Kind regards
