Is there a way to remap keys on my keyboard even when I am not in an X session? Currently I am using setxkbmap but that only works if I start X.
For what it's worth, I am using Arch+i3, and my main need is to remap Capslock to Control, although I'd like to do some other stuff as well if possible.
Thanks for the help!submitted by coldsnapped

I live in Philadelphia, where people deal with laptops all the time and get them patched up (thriving computer repair scene here), plus there are regulations against just dumping broken electronics (curb alerts happen sometimes but this place is thriving with paid computer repair services), so it's apparently really hard to get my hands on broken laptops around where I live. I know lots of people have broken laptops that they don't want, it's just a matter of getting rid of them.
What I want to do, personally, is repair broken laptops and then donate them to the needy. Like, I don't have a lot of money, per se, except maybe to buy the occasional $10-$50 part? My current job doesn't get me enough to outbid people on ebay and keep rent paid. I want to develop experience with repairing computers and find a job in computer repair, but it's apparently tricky to get my hands on something broken. Of course I'm always looking around for higher-paying work but people are going to pick experienced technicians over a newbie, pretty reasonable choice.
There are still some options floating around, there was a manager from a recycling plant who really liked my story and suggested I send him a resume (I did) but I also want to have a positive community impact with my skills, too. What I'm asking for is free broken electronics. Like maybe there's a subscriber to this subreddit here with way too much junk lying around to know what to do with and doesn't mind shipping out a box with a laptop in it or a case for me to tinker around with and get up and running. It wouldn't take me long to find it a good home here. Plus it'd give me a chance to play with Linux, maybe play with distros a bit.
I chose this subreddit because there are lots of people here, lots of computer enthusiasts, lots of chances for a response. I checked to make sure I wasn't violating any community guidelines and I'm pretty certain I haven't, yet, but yeah. I would really appreciate a helping hand. Thank you.submitted by ohmsnap

I've setup a dd-wrt router to log to rsyslog-5.8.10-8. At the moment everything is logging to the console, so I know at least rsyslog is receiving the data. What I'd like is everything from 192.168.1.45 to log to /var/log/router. I'm realizing it's been too many years since I've done anything syslog or rsyslog related. This isn't working:192.168.1.45 /var/log/router
I need some more advanced fu to get it right. Anyone doing it correctly? Please share!submitted by FrankieStardust
