Custom keyboard layout without root

I would like to make "simple" change to my keyboard layout. I want to use only numpad for numbers, and insert symbols from top row without holding shift.

Now I know I can just edit/create new layout by editing files in /usr/share/X11/*, but maybe someone have better idea? Maybe this kind of layout exists?
The most ideal way would allow me to do it even if I do not have root access. For example in XFCE and zshrc.

English is not my first language, so please forgive me for my mistakes.

Re: Custom keyboard layout without root

You can use xmodmap and put it in .xinitrc.

See and "man xmodmap" for details.
If your DE doesn't use .xinitrc, it may have it's own method of setting up custom keyboards.
