I am trying to set up my computer so that the escape key performs the caps lock function and caps lock performs the escape key function. I have a small script to swap my escape and caps lock using xmodmap. In my .bash_profile, which is in my home directory, I put this line:
which to my knowledge, should run .capsswap, which I have in my home directory as well, when I log in.
the contents of .capsswap are
1 ! Swap caps and Escape 2 3 remove Lock = Caps_Lock 4 keysym Escape = Caps_Lock 5 keysym Caps_Lock = Escape 6 add Lock = Caps_Lock
I am running Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS.
Basically this isn't working as nothing happens on when I log in. I'm pretty new to using bash and xmodmap in general, and I could be totally wrong with what I am doing, so if anyone knows how to fix this problem, or can suggest a better way to swap the escape and caps lock, please let me know.
