Post Keyboard Layout Editor

Hi there everyone, I was hoping to check whether there's a freeware, even shareware or trial version, of any software that is available to Linux platform that will be used in editing layout on a QWERTY keyboard.

I was hoping to see if any software of such would quickly and easily define my own keyboard layout for a language Ubuntu/Linux doesn't support. Or perhaps define my own keyboard layout so I can quickly and easily enter my favourite symbols with a simple keystroke.

Also having the keyboard work on 64-bit platforms, or make use of custom locales in Linux to provide new language names.

Perhaps a Debian version of the famous Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator, a.k.a MKLC, which is available for Windows-based platforms only.

In addition to the points mentioned, I wanted to know if it would allow users to:

Create new keyboard layouts from scratch
Base a new layout on an existing one
Modify an existing keyboard layout and build a new layout from it
Multilingual input locales within edit control fields
Build keyboard layouts for x86, and x64 platforms
Package the resulting keyboard layouts for subsequent delivery and installation

If all, or perhaps a few, of the points above are met in any freeware you come across, I would appreciate if you could post it online for me know and for others who may come across the same inquiry in the future.

With warm regards,
