I'm not sure why you think it doesn't work.
One indication that it does not work is that when I run /usr/bin/xmodmap -e 'keycode 116=degree' in F-9 the key to the right of the right ALT key produces a degree ° symbol.

The same command in F-10 makes it useless, that same key does nothing and the cursor down arrow key generates the degree symbol instead as well as no longer moving the cursor making it impossible to navigate though a file listing.

/usr/bin/xkeycaps no longer gives meaningful indications and the menu for selecting the keyboard type is presented in some very difficult [for me] to read font.

There are other problems but these are typical of what I am seeing. There is a very good possibility that I am doing something wrong but I haven't found it. I haven't seen anyone else complaining which doesn't help my confidence ...



I'm one of those people, increasingly rare, who grew up on a Sun keyboard, and I simply must have my capslock and ctrl keys switched on a pc keyboard. I generated a file for use by xmodmap using xkeycaps and then I added 518 > cat swapcaps.sh #! /bin/bash
xmodmap .xmodmap-saturn.syslang.net
519 >
to my ~/.kde/Autostart

Works great.
