    Redefine multiple keystrokes

    I am hoping to convert to Linux from Windows. But to keep up my productivity level, I need to be able to define multiple keystrokes for specific X windows.

    For example, in Open Office Writer I want to be able to use the 2 key sequence "Ctrl-Q,Ctrl-S" to move the cursor to the beginning of the line (i.e. this sequence should send the {Home} keystroke) and the sequence "Ctrl-Q,Ctrl-D" to move the cursor to the end of the line (i.e. this sequence should send the {End} keystroke).

    Is there anything I can use to accomplish this for X windows? At present I use the very powerful AutoHotKey in Windows to accomplish this. I don't need something as powerful as AutoHotKey. I just need to be able to intercept X key and mouse events, do a little scripting and then send X key and mouse events.
