Is there a way to map the Left Ctrl as Super on Ubuntu 12.10.

The keyboard layout app doesn't seem to have this option.


This is kind-of an ugly hack, but it should work:

  1. Go to /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/ (this is where I find keyboard layout files on Ubuntu 12.04, but I suppose 12.10 should be similar),

  2. Find your layout file (I guess for United States keyboard it will be simply us),

  3. Add this line there: key <LCTL> { [ Super_L ] }; (I think it can go right to the first "section" of that file),

  4. Logout and login again.
