Description Thomas Dodd 2002-09-16 18:38:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827 Description of problem: To swap the <CTRL> and <Cap> keys the correct option is ctrl:swapcaps rh-cfg-cf86 inserts a commented line for it as ctrl:nocaps. That makes the <Caps> key work as control, but there is no caps-lock key then. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.configure X server with rh-cfg-xf86 2.look at the resulting XF86Config file 3. Actual Results: XF86Config has this line: # If you'd like to switch the positions of you capslock and # controls keys, use: # Option "XkbdOptions" "ctrl:nocaps" That option disables the capslock function (no key for it) Expected Results: it should be: # Option "XkbdOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps" That option actuall swapps the functionality. Additional info: A check box for this option in rh-cfg-xf86 would be nice too. Like the one for emulate 3 buttons on mice. Having that option also switch the keys in console mode would be outstanding. I a use does it in X they are likely to want it on the console too.

I think that this has been fixed in the latest tree. By the way, I think that this was actually fixed in the XFree86 package, not redhat-config-xfree86. The file now says: # If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and # controls keys, use: # Option "XkbdOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps" # Or if you just want both to be control, use: # Option "XkbdOptions" "ctrl:nocaps" Thanks for your report.
