More on Caps Lock and CTRL
Okay, I gave up on Caps Lock altogether.
For the few rare times that I might want to write a sentence in all caps there are alternatives to Caps Lock. For instance I could just type it all lower case, highlight in vim’s visual mode and press ~ to swap the case.
At any rate, leaving the CTRL key to behave like Caps Lock was really getting in my way. So I did some more xmodmap searching online and came up with this other solution:
! ! Make Capslock another CTRL key ! remove Lock = Caps_Lock remove Control = Control_L keysym Caps_Lock = Control_L add Lock = Caps_Lock add Control = Control_L
Whelp, there you go. That seems to make me more productive even with the short time I’ve had to train my muscle memory.
Until next time…
