Getting Right Alt key to work

The right alt key press was eliciting no response on my Ubuntu 8.10 laptop in Gnome. After a bit of Googling, I found the following solution -
System -> Preferences -> Keyboard
Here choose Layouts tab. Then choose Other Options button. Keyboard Layout Options widow pops up. In this click on Alt/Win key behaviour and select -
Alt and Meta are on Alt keys.
This should solve the problem.
