I'm having trouble getting
tmux to accept a caps-lock key that has been remapped using
setxkbmap. I use the following:
setxkbmap -option ctrl:nocaps
tmux, the usual BASH command line editing is fine with this "new" control key (the old caps lock button) -- works for moving cursor forward/backward, previous commands, etc. However, the
tmux prefix key combination will not accept this new key, if I try to use the "new" ctrl button while running
tmux, I am unable to call the prefix, making
I am running ubuntu 14.04,
tmux version 1.8. I have also tried using the
gnome-tweak-tool to change the caps lock to ctrl, and using
setxkbmap -option ctrl:swapcaps also.
Neither improves the situation. Oddly, when swapping keys the "new" capslock (old ctrl) is acknowledged by
tmux, all of the following text is capitalized.
If this seems like an inappropriate place for this question let me know, I'll place it on tmux github issues. Thanks.
