I am running Xfce under Xubuntu 14.04, 32-bit.

My finger are arthritic/stiff, so that I must lift up my hands to type each letter, as they do not move independently enough that I can keep my hands anchored and type.

And as I do a lot of copy paste operations and use the PC a lot, under Windows I use AutoHotKey (in which ^ is ctrl) to remap CapsLock to crtrl+c (copy) and Esc to ctrl+v (paste) and NumLock to Esc, and also the middle mouse key to ctrl+x (cut) via a script:

CapsLock::^c

Esc::^v

NumLock::Esc

mbutton::^x

I can run AutoHotKey under Wine but the script does not work. I also have AutoKey installed, but cannot figure out how to do what i want.

The accepted answer to How do I remap certain keys or devices? does not work in this case because the wev command does not show (from what I see) the key code for key combos: ctrl is the same as ctrl+c, with only the state (state 0x6) being different: state 0x4, keycode 37 (keysym 0xffe3, Control_L), same_screen YES.

And it is not clear how to swap the two keys using xmodmap even if I had 2 different key codes.

This is very major issue for me as regards my using Linux. Thanks for any help.
