Having used computers for most of my life, I cannot recall a single time that I’ve actually used the
Caps Lock button.
With this button be so easily available, I found it to be a perfect key to use for things like push to talk or mute/unmute for voice and video calls, especially since most companies are working remotely due to covid.
I found this small command that will still allow one to map keys to
Caps Lock but will disable the actual capitalizing of all letters.
$ setxkbmap -option ctrl:nocaps
One can throw this in their
~/.rc.local to run on boot if you always want it to fire off.
