How to change keyboard layout switching shortcut keys to Shift+ (Apple command key)? I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with Mac keyboard.

There is no Apple command key in Keyboard Layout Options. When I try to add shortcut Shift+ in Keyboard Shortcuts nothing happens, although Shift++anykey works.

Also, setxkbmap us works to set specific layouts, but not to toggle between them.
