I am currently working on an Ubuntu 12.10 workstation, and as a Mac user I would like to use the big Apple keyboard (with numeric keypad) on Ubuntu with the same key mappings that I have on MacOSX.


  • I would like to copy/paste with Command+C/V, etc.
  • Switch tabs with Command+Tab
  • Close applications with Command+Q
  • Go to begin/end line with Control+A/B
  • Etc

Basically, I would like the same exact keyboard behavior and experience that I have on OSX, but on Ubuntu.
