I want to remap my Kinesis Freestyle 2 PC keyboard to Mac.

I can do most of it by swapping the modifier keys within the keyboard preferences, however I want to switch the right CTRL key to be an option key like in a default Mac keyboard.

Install KeyRemap4MacBook and save a file like this as ~/Library/Application Support/KeyRemap4MacBook/private.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::CONTROL_R, KeyCode::OPTION_L</autogen>

Then open the KeyRemap4MacBook application, press the ReloadXML button, and enable the setting.
