i got an ibook g4, and i ran into your problem when i started my
training period. no "guide" would work (most were obsolete, talking
about the old input method, and xmodmap). i had to make my own.

my experience and solution at :


it still does not work 100% as you would expect regarding meta/alt
mappings, but it does all {} [] | like on a mac :)

on emacs, command is "meta", same as esc on pc.

works good enough to get work done.
i also did the same mapping on the console.
