[SOLVED] What Do I Edit To Disable Caps Lock?

Hey Guys!

Just installed Bunsen on my brand new 'puter- yes, I'm finally retiring my c.6 year-old install of Crunchbang on my old 12 year-old 'puter....

It's been so long, I've forgotten how to disable the caps lock- I know last time, i JUST EDITED AN .RC FILE....BUT I forgotteded exactlky what file, and where it lives (<-- see why I need it?).

I'm pretty much computer illiterate, so please, speak slowly and dumb it down! big_smile

In the right-click menu, select "Preferences", then "Openbox", then "Edit autostart".

Somewhere around line 35 you should see the following text:

#setxkbmap -option ctrl:nocaps

Just delete the # at the start of that line, save the file, then log out and back in.

Dude! ...I mean, mon-sewer! "autostart" was the place! (Filesys->home->(username)->.config->openbox->autostart)

Looked in there on my old system, and found what I needed:

##Turns off caps-lock
setxkbmap -option ctrl:nocaps &

Je vous remercie!

If I had only seen your post a few minutes sooner! ...there I was, figuring out how to use the 'find' command, to locate the autostart file.....when all I would have had to do was right-click!

Ah well, that will come in handy in the future, for sure.

Thanks!

Potentially interesting one for vim users (untested)

setxkbmap -option "caps:swapescape"
