On my system, I got it working with a patch to Orca to use setxkbmap,

package to add a new caps lock configuration, which I called "orca".
Done this way, this option shows up in the Keyboard settings dialog
along with the other settings for the caps lock key, which is kind of
cool. ÂI have Orca enable the orca mode with:

setxkbmap -option caps:orca

and disable it with:

setxkbmap -option

Awesome find! I think the orca preset in the xkb settings could probably
be renamed to something more generic, then it should be a matter of
justifying it upstream, which I don't think will be a problem.

+1 to more generic.

I'm not willing to put either patch into Ubuntu until both patches are
applieddddddddddddd upstream. Backporting the patches won't be a
problem, but upstream is where they should be first, so its less work
for downstream distros to carry them in the future.


Bill if you could attach your Orca patch to the following bug: It would be awesome.
In addition, after you file the bug related to xkb please add a link
to that bug as a comment to 658122 so I can track it and then make the
changes in Orca after the required xkb changes have been made.

Thanks much for digging into this!

Take care.
