For example, to change to a spanish keyboard mapping, type:
Or even better, you can assign a key to be the Compose key. This has
the advantage of not changing the layout of the keyboard at all. For
xmodmap -e "remove mod1 = Meta_R" -e "keysym Meta_R = Multi_key"

Don't forget, there are the 'Character Picker' and 'GKB Switcher'
applets for the gnome panel.
