[Assuming a debian-like  (ubuntu?) system and gnome]
I was playing around with this yesterday and you may want to look at
System -> Preferences -> keyboard (not keyboard shortcuts) -> layouts -

though exactly what you want is not there as far as I can see.

I also have a similar question:

I can do this and it works, however the keyboard capslock light
behaves as though this change is not made and is therefore misleading
