You should be able to set a layout-switch hotkey through xkb directly.
The options used to be under Keyboard Layout -> Xkb Options in
the Control Center, or you can call setxkbmap from the command line.  
You can also set a compose key this way, which will let you type 
characters with accents and other diacritics using a US keyboard layout.  

For instance, my system has Scroll Lock set as a compose key,
so if I want to type n-tilde (ñ), the corresponding key sequence is
Scroll Lock, ~, n.  The corresponding setxkbmap command would
be: setxkbmap -option compose:sclk
