I'm about to hold a course for learning Linux. I'd like the participants to see what keys and key combinations I press. Is there anything like Mouseposé for Linux?

I've used key-mon and I'm really impressed with it. It does exactly what you want without eing a nuisance. The only let down, is that if you keep holding any of the modifiers down, e.g. control, then the consecutive key combinations (ctrl + x, then ctrl + s) will not display the control key as being pressed down.

For running e.g. a tutorial on Emacs navigation, this somewhat of a let down. Apart from that, I find key-mon great.

Key-mon is a little python program I found recently that seems to do exactly what you want. I have not tried it myself yet, so I can't comment on how well it works.
