Jaunty Keyboard Layout Settings 2

March 18th, 2010 subogero

Finally. I’ve picked up my US keyboard for the ASUS UL20A today. Installation was surprisingly easy, with no warranty-void-if-removed stickers anywhere. Time to play again with keyboard settings. Default layout became US International (with dead keys). I kept Hungarian (qwerty) as well for the occasional őŐűŰ. And now to the most interesting part, the Layout Options.

Ctrl Key Position, Make CapsLock an additional Ctrl.
Hurraaaaah!!!! The bloody CapsLock is eliminated at last!

Key(s) to Change Layout, Both Shift keys together.
A combination of keys far away from each other, never normally used together.

Use keyboard LED to show alternative layout. CapsLock.
Of course. As the bastard is dead, I can use its LED to indicate if the Hungarian layout is active.

This incredible abundance of keyboard settings is amazing. A good reason alone to choose Linux over Windows.
