    Try this:

    Install a program called XKeyCaps (it's available in the Ubuntu universe repos). In terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install XKeyCaps

    When you run the program, it will give you a GUI of the keyboard which will allow for easier remapping of the keys. Then you click on write output and make sure you add

    Code:
    xmodmap ~/.xmodmap-`uname-n`
    to your sessions so it autostarts each time you boot up and your good to go.

    You can run it by typing it in the terminal.
    Go to Applications > Accessories > Terminal. Then type
    Code:
    xev
    Once you get the keycode from there, type the second command in terminal according to your keycode. To do it automatically, add this command in the "startup session commands" or in your .bashrc.
    Peace
