I wrote previously about
Ctrl in an older version of Ubuntu,
but recently I have been using Xubuntu because I don't like the user interface
changes in the newer versions of standard Ubuntu desktop. Well, it turns out
that the old technique for swapping the keys doesn't work on Xubuntu. But there
is an alternate method:
- Open the Applications Menu on the top left side of the screen and click Settings.
Click on the Settings Manager option and then click on Session and Startup.
Click the Add button and enter Swap CapsLock & Ctrl for the name.
/usr/bin/setxkbmap -option "ctrl:swapcaps"for the command.
Click the OK button and then click the Close button.
- Restart the computer.
That is it... Super easy!
