I have a Redhat application that I run on my OSX desktop via a remote X11 session. Everything works fine except keyboard shortcuts. I can copy with Command C but I have to use Control P rather than Command P to paste. Also I can't save with Command S.

I would like to remap left command to control for all X11 sessions. Is this possible?

KeyRemap4MacBook lets you do this.

  • Install KeyRemap4MacBook
  • Restart your Mac
  • Open KeyRemap4MacBook Preferences
  • Expand "Change Command_L Key"
  • Check Command_L to Control_L (only in X11)
