comment Case sensitivity in shell scripting
More precisely, you need to set LC_COLLATE to C, it's ok for other locale settings to be different. Setting LC_COLLATE to anything but C is rarely a good idea but sadly Ubuntu does it (it isn't the only culprit by far).

comment Why is this Bash script not working?
There is absolutely no advantage to call ls here: the wildcards do the right thing, but ls breaks things. Furthermore, with the command substitution inside the double quotes, the only case when this will work is if there is exactly one matching file.

comment Using the Read command to store multiple words in one variable
This isn't how bash behaves by default. Please post a complete script that reproduces the problem. (A complete bash script starts with #!/bin/bash)

comment Re-mapping keyboard keys
@JonathanLeaders You should ask a new question, explaining exactly how you ran the program. Be sure to mention which version of Ubuntu you're running.
