Reddit: Re-map my keyboard

Monday 2nd of March 2015 06:31:56 AM

Hi guys,

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!

LXer: Pi Glove interview

Monday 2nd of March 2015 02:40:30 AM
I was invited to the second Picademy back in July. The first day was workshops, education, and the second day was a pure hack day, and we had a bit of a chat with Eben [Upton] and some other people who wanted to support and build something. We wanted to come up with something you could physically use, and we decided to use Scratch GPIO.

Leftovers: KDE Software

  • PyKDE Future: Seeking a New Maintainer
