This problem is preventing me from installing F-10 on this computer.
I have a script that runs:
/usr/bin/xmodmap -e 'keycode 116=degree'
/usr/bin/xmodmap -e 'keycode 117=mu'
/usr/bin/xmodmap -e 'keycode 66=NoSymbol'
When I run of those in the F-10 computer it corrupts the keyboard
mapping, the worst thing is that the down arrow key prints a "°" degree
symbol to the screen with the first command which should change a
Windows key to "°".
I am satisfied if I can simply disable the Caps Lock key.
I will be watching responses to your problem.
