ignore caps-lock light

This is a bug which is amusing me. My keyboard at home is a unix-style one – it has ‘Ctrl’ where the ‘Caps Lock’ is on a typical PC keyboard. Which meant that I kept pressing ‘Caps Lock’ by mistake on the new keyboard at work.

Fortunately the Gnome Keyboard Preferences screen has a simple dialog to choose different layout options, so I selected ‘Make CapsLock an additional Ctrl’. The key is functioning fine as a Ctrl, but no-one’s told the keyboard – it keeps turning the CapsLock light on and off.

My keyboard at home doesn’t have any lights, so I’m used to not looking at them…
