I followed some post a while ago, and it said to make an
~/.xmodmap file like so:
! Swap caps lock and escape remove Lock = Caps_Lock keysym Escape = Caps_Lock keysym Caps_Lock = Escape add Lock = Caps_Lock
I did, and it now I can swap
caps lock by doing
xmodmap ~/.xmodmap. I wanted this to be permanent, so I added that command to my
~/.bash_profile, but it doesn't seem to work; I still have to manually
xmodmap. As an EEng dropout, I am tempted to just rewire my keyboard }:-) but I know there must be a better way. How can I make this work, permanently?
