solution

Hello!
I found out a solution for the AltGr issue.
Open /usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/7.0/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/ TextResources/X/KeyEventTranslations.tr file on your system.(eg.: sudo nano ..., paths may vary).
Then somewhere under "EventTranslations[{" type some newlines, then paste this literally:
Item[KeyEvent["ISO_Level3_Shift"], FrontEndExecute[{FrontEnd`NotebookWrite[FrontEnd`InputNotebook[], Sequence[], After]}] ],
This code translates the AltGr key(ISO_Level3_Shift) to produce something in the notebook, which is in this case nothing, becase Sequence[] evaluates to nothing, albeit its syntactically correct.
Restart mathematica, and enjoy its once again slow interface under Linux :(
i used version Mathematica 7.0.0, kernel 2.6.27, 64bit, Arch Linux, X.org v11.0.
by the way: you can define shortcuts in this file easily.
