Dell Latitude E6540, german keyboard.

I can type AltGr-{ ... and so on, but ctrl-alt-{ ... as labeled on the
keyboard gives something wrong.

It seems like when Alt is pressed Ctrl (Strg) is ignored, it gives the
same keys as without Ctrl.

I tried some things with setxkbmap, but no success.
Your description is quite inprecise; which terminal do you use (xterm?) and what exactly do you expect and see in those cases?

Unfortunately, there doesn't currently seem to be a way to configure X to act in this way.

In xkeyboard-config language, you are trying to access the "3rd level shift" for a key (1st level is the normal key, 2nd is the shifted key)

I believe that the standard (DIN 2137) specifies that this 3rd level is accessed by right alt.

ctrl + left alt being equivalent to right alt is a Windows-ism [1].
Again, not sure exactly what effect you suggest but in fact Ctrl+Left-Alt and AltGr can be distinguished and it works in both xterm and mintty. (It's a bit tricky and I don't recall the details right now, it involves considering the sequence of events.)

See the upstream bug [2], you might also find the discussion in [3] of interest.
