I know it is easy to this in Gnome, but how can I do it in LXDE?

If you are the only person using the machine then the easiest option is to include the following line in the keyboard section of your XF86Config-4 file.

  Option          "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:swapcaps"

These ensures that the swap is done automatically whenever X starts.
