I put settings in a file called ~/.Xmodmap:

xmodmap -e 'keycode 66=Return'
xmodmap -e "clear Lock"

The next time I logged in, I was prompted as to whether to load ~/.Xmodmap. I loaded it, and tick “don't ask me again”.

Still it does not remap the desired key. I am using Linux Mint 13 (maya).

The commands work perfectly if I run them manually.

I have possibly the same issue in Fedora 19. – mwcz Aug 1 '13 at 15:18
