On all of my computers I use gnome-tweak-tool to remap CAPSLOCK to CTRL. But there are times when I’m working in a virtual machine that doesn’t have that setup so I need to go back to old school methods.

If you’re on a box just run this from any terminal:

setxkbmap -option ctrl:nocaps

That avoids trying to kill a program with C which usually doesn’t work🙂
