I’m serious! Mine almost died! I am of course talking about the left little finger. Do yourself a favor and save your finger (and be faster, which is the meaning of life) by switching Ctrl and Caps Lock. Put this in ~/.xmodmap:
remove Lock = Caps_Lock remove Control = Control_L keysym Control_L = Caps_Lock keysym Caps_Lock = Control_L add Lock = Caps_Lock add Control = Control_L
And then put this line in ~/.bash_profile:
I takes a while getting used to. But it cant be worse than learning to use C-n, C-p, C-f, C-b, M-f, M-b, etc… instead of using the arrows, which you do use, right?
