I use a Mac at work and Fedora at home. Right now, my muscle memory is confused when I try to copy and paste. Is there a way to remap Copy, Paste, and creating a new tab in a browser (cmd+t) to alt+c, alt+v, and alt+t?

You can create custom shortcuts in Gnome3 in the "keyboard" utility under system settings.

@ztank1013: down vote the answer then? I still think this is a good solution for his system wide requirements though.

I assumed that copy paste would be listed there as well and could be modified. Just checked, and they aren't. Not sure why. :/

If you are using Firfox you may want to install Customizable Shortcuts add-on (currently it is at 0.5.10 version) to switch to meta+t instead of the default ctrl+t.

After installing open the "Preferences" dialog and go to the "Shortcuts" section. To change a shortcut select a row, click on the "Edit" button (alternatively you can double-click on the right column) and enter your desired key combination.

A little more help can be found here maybe...
