I got myself a laptop and the keyboard is slightly goofed up because the right Shift key is in a place where I have typically had the PageUp key. So, I wanted to figure out how to remap the right Shift key to PageUp.
xmodmap -pke > /tmp/xmodmap.conf
and found out that the keycode for the right Shift is 62. So, I edited the
/tmp/xmodmap.conf file so that keycode 62 maps to "Prior" (which I found out was PageUp) and then I ran
The "Shift" key on the right side of my keyboard was then able to do a "Page Up." Neat! Then, I copied that
/tmp/xmodmap.conf file into my home directory (
/home/someUser/) and put the command
/etc/rc.local. But the right Shift key did NOT map to PageUp on the next boot!
Note that I have already added
XKbOptions into my
ctrl:nocaps and that works beautifully. What I am wondering is if someone can help me set this new mapping (Right Shift to PageUp) in
/etc/default/keyboard so that the mapping will work on the virtual consoles as well as in X/XFCE.
This is being run on a 64-bit Xubuntu 12.10 installation.
