I've tried searching a lot with no success. I know this can be done because I have done it before, but since then I've reinstalled the OS.
I know that I used xmodmap to do this the last time.
My reasoning for this is because both shift keys are broken on my laptop so I've trained myself to use right-ctrl as right-shift.
I know that my laptop has right-ctrl as
keycode 105. As far as I can tell left shift is
keycode 50 and right shift is
I've tried doing the following things:
xmodmap -e 'keycode 105 = Shift_R' (this shows the right-ctrl key as being right-shift under xev but pressing it actually does nothing)
xmodmap -e 'keycode 105 = 62' (this outputs
xmodmap -e 'keycode 105 = 50' (this outputs
Can someone please show me what I need to do in order to make this work and make it work as a permanent change? This is an unusable OS for me until I can do this. I manged this in Windows in just a few minutes! :(
