I hate Caps Lock because I accidentally hit it when I go for the A key, then I'm all uppercase, have to backspace through it, and type it again. Here's how to make Scroll Lock into Caps Lock.
Make file in $HOME, call it .xmodmap or something:
! If you have undefined keys, login as root and ! tail -f /var/log/syslog to find them while ! pounding on the undefined keys. ! Clear all the modifiers clear Lock clear Shift clear Control ! Then set them all up again keycode 50 = Shift_L keycode 62 = Shift_R ! Change Caps_Lock to Shift_L keycode 66 = Shift_L add Shift = Shift_L add Shift = Shift_R ! Scroll_Lock is now Caps_Lock keycode 78 = Caps_Lock ! or you can do this: ! keycode 78 = F28 ! Now Scroll_Lock is Function Key 28
Then you type "xmodmap ~/.xmodmap" and the keyboard has been fixed to your liking.
Now it's the window manager's domain. Tell the window manager what to do with F28. I use icewm, so in ~/.icewm/keys I say:
key "F28" firefox -new-window http://SOME_URL

Nice input. Thanks for the input but what about the logo and particularly its design. Any suggestion or sharing like these will be welcome.
