How to make Caps-lock key as additional Control key.


How can I make Caps-lock to be a Control key and leave the original Control keys as they are?


Since the following code is for swapping caps lock and left control,
Code:
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
remove Control = Control_L
keysym Control_L = Caps_Lock
keysym Caps_Lock = Control_L
add Lock = Caps_Lock
add Control = Control_L
I thought the following would make caps lock left control and then there would be two left Control keys.
Code:
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
remove Control = Control_L
keysym Caps_Lock = Control_L
add Lock = Caps_Lock
add Control = Control_L
But it didn't work.

You should be able to just (from a good workings state)

remove Lock = Caps_Lock
add Control = Caps_Lock

since you are just adding caps lock as a new control key
