That damn Caps Lock
Today I had a bad day. I tried to log on to a service.
- First try invalid password
- Second try invalid password
- Third attempt password invalid locked session
The culprit: That damn CapsLock. Who dared to invent this key?
Under Linux I decided to give it a new function. Instead of caps lock it will be a new innocent copy of the F1 key.
To do this I use xev to find the code of the key. It is Caps_Lock code name 66. Then in a terminal I deactivate the key lock and assign the F1 key function to it.
xmodmap -e "remove lock = Caps_Lock" xmodmap -e "keycode 66 = F1"
And bob is your uncle :)
