Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443813
Ctrl toggles caps lock LED when it's swapped with CapsLock
Last modified: 2009-01-23 04:42:18 EST
Description of problem:
I select "Swap Ctrl and CapsLock" in Keyboard Preferences / Layouts / Layout
Options / Ctrl key position. The keys work as expected, except the now ctrl key
(formerly capslock) toggles the caps LED.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fresh install of F-9 preview from live CD + yum update
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Keyboard Preferences / Layouts / Layout Options / Ctrl key position,
and select "Swap Ctrl and CapsLock".
2. Test the two keys in the "Type to test settings" widget.
New CapsLock works, but doesn't toggle the caps LED. New Ctrl works, but does
toggle the caps LED.
CapsLock toggles the LED, Ctrl doesn't.

I am hit by this bug too. It's very uncomfortable when you don't know if the
caps lock is switched on.
Works fine now with xorg-x11-server-1.5.0-3. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE, please reopen if you can reproduce this issue.
