I'm using /etc/default/keyboard to make my Caps Lock key the Ctrl key. However, when I play Dota 2 this binding doesn't take effect. What method do I use so that this binding holds even when playing full screen games?

I'm on Xubuntu 12.04.

So far I tried /etc/default/keyboard and xmodmap. Both of them doesn't apply the binding when I'm ingame. –  user283808 May 22 '14 at 5:11
