I am running Xubuntu Intrepid 64bit (fresh install) on a Lenovo X61. I want to use the caps lock key as the compose key.
To do so, I added the following section at the end of my xorg.conf:
But when I then do Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, X says it cannot parse the configuration file, and starts in low resolution mode (which I think uses etc/X11/xorg.conf.failsafe).
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Option "XkbOptions" "compose:caps"
What is wrong with the section above, or is there any other way to set the compose key to CapsLock in Xubuntu/ Xfce?
Just to be complete, the rest of the xorg.conf is what is automatically generated, and looks like this (without the commented section at the beginning of the file):
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
