I am running 11.04 on a 2011 13" macbook pro. Everything (except wireless) is working correctly. However, the command button acts like the "Super" or "windows" button on a standard keyboard and Option is the Alt button. Can I make it so the Option/Alt button acts like the super button while the Command button acts like alt? This would more correctly match a traditional PC keyboard layout.

I would prefer a method that globally swaps the two, and not manually binding shortcut keys as the latter method seems to miss some non-configurable shortcuts (in my experience).

Have you tried modifying keyboard layout options? –  RolandiXor Apr 26 '11 at 23:24
playing with the layouts and the options there allows me to swap left command and left option (!!!), but the right command and right option remain the same. –  gregghz Apr 27 '11 at 3:58
