Linux on Chromebook- switch keyboard layout with "capslock"

On the chromebook keyboard layout the capslock button is replaced with 133 Super_L. I'd like to use it to toggle keyboard layouts in both X and console. Here's my xorg config:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "system-keyboard"
        Option "XkbLayout" "dvorak,ru"
        Option "XkbModel" "chromebook"
        Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
        Option "XkbOptions" "grp:caps_toggle"
none of the possible grp:x_toggle options work for me
