This is really annoying. I know I have used xmodmap(1) in the past
and it served me well. I now have a Dell keyboard on a Dell system
and I can't get the caps lock key swapped with the left control key.
Here is what I have now (yes, both -- belt and suspenders...):
unix% head -6 $HOME/.xmodmaprc
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
unix% grep modmap .xinitrc
unix% grep swap /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
unix% pkg info | grep xorg-server
xorg-server-1.14.7_2,1 X.Org X server and related programs
I have rebooted the system as well as restarting Xorg to make sure
everything was running from a fresh beginning.
One of the above should have worked, but in my xterm window(s) the
caps lock is still CAPS LOCK, sigh... Can anyone provide a clue?
