Ubuntu: Where to put xmodmap command execution for remapping CapsLock to Esc?


I am a vim user and I use Esc frequently so I mapped Caps Lock to Esc.

I currently have this in my ~/.profile:

# remap Esc to Caps Lock  xmodmap -e 'clear Lock' -e 'keycode 0x42 = Escape'  

The problem is that every time I suspend my computer or even lock the screen, the mapping of Caps Lock goes back to its default.

My question is, where should I put this line so that the remap remains even after suspension and locking the screen (etc).


The problem is that xmodmap is deprecated, and the keyboard layout is resetted at strange times. See if https://askubuntu.com/a/464618/16395 can help you.

In gnome-shell you can achieve this thing by setting, in gnome-tweak-tool, one of these options:

gnome tweak tool screenshot editing caps lock behavior

You should be able to find an equivalent thing for Elementary.
