I am running LInux Mint and want to remap CAPSLOCK to CONTROL.

I tried the keyboard setup and I can remap it and all applications work fine EXCEPT Adobe Fireworks. It screws up the combo keys.

So I was wondering if there's another way besides the keyboard preferences. Want to see if there's another method that wont screw up Fireworks when I am running WINE.

Thanks! Scott

Tried xmodmap and re-mapped it. But same problem. Fireworks doesnt work normal. – Scott Yu - Front-End UX Nov 19 '10 at 10:00
