I want to map my caps lock key to backspace and kde has this option in its settings but caps lock isn't converted purely to backspace since on holding the converted caps lock nothing happens. It only deletes one character on one key press however long the press may be.
So I wrote a script
setxkbmap -option caps:backspace xmodmap -e "clear Lock"
and put it in autostart by GUI (as shown) but it isn't working.
I don't have much experience in linux but I think this is a fairly simple task and thats why its bothering me so much.
Can you please tell where I might be wrong ?
