    iBook keyboard caps lock as control [solved]

    Another item from the "stuff I had to find out about Linux on an iBook and thought it may be useful to someone else".

    If you have an iBook, and want to swap the caps lock and control keys, before you swap them, you have to do this(with privs):

    echo 1 > /sys/module/adbhid/parameters/restore_capslock_events

    This will let the caps lock events be reported normally, so you actually make use of the caps as a control.
