How to remap your iBook keyboard

by Volker Weber

Just found this gem via John Gruber's review of his PowerBook. It explains how you can remap the enter key to have a second command key right of your space bar. Very handy for lefties.

any hints or "how-to"s with regard to the obnoxious CAPS-LOCK-key on the powerbooks keyboard? I am desperate for this.... I HATE TO SHOUT INADVERTANTLY :-)

Amen, brother -- I assume you're talking about the same problem I have? Namely...
Even though I have CAPS_LOCK mapped to CTRL, it still ends up sticking sometimes
(usually when I'm typing furiously and perhaps I hit it + some other key at once?). It's
been this way forever so my brain has learned to recover from a few mistyped
ctrl+ and then hit CAPS_LOCK a couple times to get things back to normal.
Ugh. It's all the more annoying because OS/X *allows* you to use emacs-style editing
keys (C-a, C-p, C-n, C-e, C-k, C-y, etc...), and yet if you remap your CAPS_LOCK key
so you don't end up with your pinky carpal tunneled worse than RMS, you get this crap
behavior! </rant-mode>

Oops... sorry about that. Suddenly I feel like everybody's staring at me. Good thing
this is the internet!
