Manipulate X11 keymaps (for xmodmap) graphically
  5 reviews

Xkeycaps is a graphical front-end to xmodmap(1). It opens a window that looks like a keyboard; moving the mouse over a key shows what KeySyms and Modifier bits that key generates. Clicking on a key simulates KeyPress/KeyRelease events on the window of your choice. It is possible to change the KeySyms and Modifiers generated by a key through a mouse-based interface. This program can also write an input file for xmodmap to recreate your changes in future sessions.

too old, no mapping support for laptop keyboards

Sorry, but I cannot recommend this. It seems very oooold. There's no support/mapping for newer keyboards and laptops; you'd have to modify the source code for that to work. Anyone?

Good to have some gui support for changing key's on netbooks, ... after starting xkeycaps don't bother about finding the correct keyboard - simply use "TYPE AT WINDOW" to find the keys you want to switch, etc.
