This question already has an answer here:
I've got a
setup-notebook-keyboard.sh script that I run everytime after logging in because I like my keyboard with the
- CapsLock -> Esc,
- CapsLock+Key -> Ctrl+Key
I've tried to set this up before, but wasn't able to.
I think I've tried setting it up in
init.d and also with ubuntu "run on startup". I guess both cases didn't work because they are not run on a shell environment or something...
But anyway, I got stuck with running the script every time after startup and after closing the lid of the Notebook. Can somebody help?
Edit: I don't think this is a duplicate of 'how to persistently remap keys in Ubuntu', I have a script which does two things and I'm happy with it since I've been using it since last year, I just wasn't able to get it to run automatically and I have researched and tried it in different ways.
Edit 2: Please remove the duplicate tag. I've tried the suggestion on the question and none of them worked. I've now tried just adding a simple
echo "(profanity) (location)" >> ~/file in:
The machine is just not doing nothing on the files, or I've done something very wrong.
I've tried adding a
(profanity).desktop entry in
~/.config/autostart, tried using the full paths, tried
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/00_xx file, tried
100, closing the lid and opening, rebooting, etc.
I test it by checking if the CapsLock key lights up or not when I press it, because after I execute
setup-notebook-keyboard.sh it doesn't light up anymore.
Aditional info that may be important: I'm using gnome shell and it's a graphic user interface.

Ps.: Now I tried adding
echo "(profanity)" >> file on
~/.bashrc, it runs when I open a terminal(and sorry in advance if you thought I was running ubuntu on a terminal in the first place). So... Why is it so hard to just have a script execute after I log in? No wonder I gave up on it 1 year ago x(
