Seems like that your keymaps problem.
I also have some keyboard problem with my xorg.
What you see if you issue an command `xmodmap' in a terminal window?
It should contain one line like this:
   mod1        Alt_L (0x40),  Alt_L (0x7d),  Meta_L (0x9c)
if you dont see `Alt_L' or `Alt_R' , then your left Alt key or right
Alt key may not work

you can then issue this command to enable both Alt keys:
  xmodmap -e 'add mod1 = Alt_L Alt_R'
