If you have sticky keys enabled, you should be able to "make alt be
pressed and held" (not sure if this has a technical term) by hitting
alt twice.  Then hit tab however many times you need.  Then "release
alt" by hitting alt again.  In other words, to get the behavior
equivalent to
but with sticky keys, you would instead use the key sequence


Hope that helps,

It would, if it worked. Unfortunately it does not work at all. Pressing ALT twice is no different than pressin it once for me. I am using the USA keyboard layout, Gnome is the one in Ubuntu Dapper. Any ideas? Thank you. :-)
