Keyboard Mapping: Swap ctrl/caps lock

Keyboard Mapping: Swap ctrl/caps lock
----------
Old-school method:
Edit either:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
Or for other (older?) versions:
/etc/X11/XF86Config
Add one of these lines under the 'Input Device' for keyboard:
If you want to swap caps-lock and control keys:
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
If you want NO caps-lock:
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
Need to re-start X to activate the changes..
