I found out a solution for the Alt-Gr 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:

Sequence[], After]}]

This code translates the Alt-Gr 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

by the way: you can define shortcuts in this file easily.
