What is the meta key? - motezart - 10-21-2020

I've been struggling with getting this window tiler to work https://github.com/kwin-scripts/kwin-tiling and thought maybe it's the meta-key? Maybe I'm hitting the wrong key? 

On mac (on my mac at least) it's esc. I've also tried alt, ctrl. What's the meta key here? Manjaro with Plasma

On a modern ANSI/ISO keyboard:
  • Meta = Alt
  • Super = Windows / Cmd
  • Hyper = Ctrl
You may need to change the mappings on an Apple Keyboard.

You can change your keyboard layout using loadkeys (Console) or setxkbmap (Xorg). I'm unfamiliar with Wayland.
