Ubuntu – How to toggle off Caps Lock by Shift key

14.10capslockkeyboard

I get used to turn Caps Lock off by Shift in Windows. That way I never need to check whether Caps Lock is on when I just want to type a first letter in uppercase. But how can I do the same in Ubuntu 14.10?

  • You can do it the same way, just try it. Open any text editor (gedit, Libre Office Writer,etc) and write with Shift pressed.

    As for Shift turning off Caps Lock, I don't know if there's such an option, but if you want to get notified every time Caps Lock changes try installing indicator-keylock.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tsbarnes/indicator-keylock

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install indicator-keylock indicator-keylock-icons
