It depends on the window manager that you are using not actually on the
desktop environment i.e. Gnome/KDE.

I use sawfish in Gnome 1.4 (and 2 :-) and to change the key bindings you
either run "sawfish-ui" from the commnad line or use the Gnome COntrol
Centre (not currently working for me).

In there you can changethe key bindings to whatever you please :-)  Now
YOU are in Control NOT the OS :-)

You'll find that quite a few edit type controls are fairly standardised
e.g ctrl-c/ctrl-v/ctrl-x are same as windoze.
