Getting "Control" on "Caps Lock" - A How To


A new la entry has been added:

Getting "Control" on "Caps Lock" - A How To

Quote:
Vitals:

Debian (unstable)
kernel, 2.6.18-4-686
Xorg 7.1.1

------------
Introduction:

If you've ever had the pleasure of using a 'Sun' keyboard, you'll note that the Caps Lock and Control keys are swapped. If you use your keyboard a lot, you probably use the Ctrl key a lot, and probably don't use the Caps Lock very often, if ever (UNLESS YOU'RE INTO YELLING). So, why force the awkward pinky reach down to the Ctrl?

I don't want to start a religious war, but:

Show of hands out there of those who've just pried the damn caps lock key outta there? Over the years, it's cost me far, far, more than it's ever saved.

Too busy enjoying **typing** on my caps-lock-less system to raise hand . I had to build a heavy fix to make it work on Ubuntu, though: http://wiki.github.com/techarcana/ubuntu-config/home
