I want to change the default key binding for starting a terminal from $mod+Enter to $mod+asciicircum. Unfortunately, this does not work.

This line in my .i3/config works fine: bindsym $mod+Return exec i3-sensible-terminal

This does not: bindsym $mod+asciicircum exec i3-sensible-terminal

Where is my mistake? For the record, my keyboard layout is de, with adkeys.

After some thought, I tried xev. The correct name for the key in the config is dead_circumflex instead of asciicircum. Sorry to have bothered you.
