hcyildiran,

Make a file called /etc/X11/xorg.conf

My file contains
Code:
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "UK keyboard"
        Driver "evdev"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        Option "xkbmodel" "evdev"
        Option "xkblayout" "gb"
#        Option "xkbvariant" "deadgraveacute"
#        Option "xkbrules" "base"
        Option "XkbOptions"  "ctrl:swapcaps"
EndSection

For me the important lines are
Code:
Option "xkblayout" "gb"
so I get a UK keyboard and
Code:
Option "XkbOptions"  "ctrl:swapcaps"
as I like my left ctrl and caps lock swapped over.
Tune the file to suit your keyboard

Yes it works. I supposed system would make a file and I would populate it.

Thank you
