comment Use setxkbmap to swap the Left Shift and Left Control
If your "not working" means some application doesn't behave as expected, keep in mind that the original behaviour of "Alt" key is not just to send Alt_L, but also Meta_L; also maybe there is some modification of the "modifiers" sections... what is the result of your "setxkbmap -print" ?

@NeilGirardi: It worked for me. What reports the "xev" command? (you launch it then press the keys, and see what they are sending).

comment Grub2 keyboard layout when decrypting partition
Another possibility, if the only remaining problem is with typing the password, would be to just type it in qwerty. That is, a "key geography" password (much like the "passwords" on the smartphones). As what you type is not displayed on screen anyway. So when configuring grub on the running system, just switch temporarly to qwerty before typing the password; then you only need to type the same key sequences at boot.
