I am using this solution since Xubuntu 6.10 onwards.
First, Add your keyboard layout(s) in Settings>Settings Manager>Keyboard
>Layouts Tab - Add and choose Layput(s).
Second, you need to make X windows recognize your new Alt+Shift
(Or Ctrl+Shift key)
sudo mousepad /etc/X11/xorg.conf
find part where is:
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
and add this to that section:
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
Logout and login or Restart or Just restart X server
(Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) for new keys to have effect.
