Default Usb keyboard automatic layout


I often need to use unicode characters when I'm writing in Spanish.
For that purpose I've set up my .Xmodmap in the following way:
clear Lock
keycode 66 = Multi_key

After running
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap

I can use the caps lock as a multi key in my laptop keyboard. However,
whenever I plug an external usb keyboard, it doesn't have the desired
layout, and I'm forced to run xmodmap again.

How can I do to modify automatically the keyboard layout of an
inserted usb keyboard? (running xmodmap from udev is not an option
because it has no effect at all).

Thanks in advance,
