I use a Dvorak keyboard, and I want to use the shortcut like a Windows/Dvorak.

I've tried to use autokey but doesn't work very well. I'm interested in a solution on Xorg directly, of the style of xmodmap or setxkbmap.

The first step is remap a arbitrary hotkey like a ctrl+k to ctrl+v, and later remap individually each hotkey. Or use the hotkeys the QWERTY in Dvorak directly.

In one of the answers to this question (same as yours but for Windows) someone suggested trying a program they wrote for *nix systems and Windows. You can find the code and instructions for doing this here. From his description, it seems it would do exactly what you want, automatically.
