Remapping Ctrl+[key] combos to Meta+[key] in LXQT (Lubuntu 19.04)

I use Mac for work, Meta+C/V seems a much saner combination to me than having to use Shift in terminal because of INTC. I’m trying to remap the Ctrl+C/V combos in LXQT to mac-like Windows/Command+C/V, but it doesn’t seem to have any effect. What I have tried so far is adding a new global binding to Shortcut Keys app:

xclip -out -selection primary | xclip -in -selection clipboard 

This command seems to work great in terminal but has no effect in the Shortcuts App, almost as if the app is spawned in a sandbox. The idea behind it is to copy the primary clipboard (auto-populated on text selection) into the more sane/permanent clipboard that works similar to OSX. I’m not attached to the above command, if there is a cleaner way to remap Ctrl keys in LXQT, I’ll do it. In Awesome WM, I simply added them into my rc.lua. I did check ~/.config/openbox/lxqt-rc.xml but don’t see anything relevant there. Also, is it possible to integrate this with qlipper?
