Remap Ctrl key on Lubuntu

LXKeymap > Tools > Show/Hide Profiles > Options > Keyboard Options

These are the two options I like to configure on all my Linux boxes:

  • Caps Lock as Ctrl
  • Key sequence to kill the X server

Click Ok and then Apply.
No need to logout nor anything, changes are immediate.
One thing I've noticed is that the options you select while on LKKeymap, even tho selected, there are no ticks on the boxes, it seems a little awkward, but the thing works.
The other thing is that the setting is not persistent... You'll have to redo this after a logout or reboot.
I'll look up for another option, as having to do this all the time is a PITA.

Edit the file: ~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart

Add the line: @lxkeymap --autostart
at the beginning... That might solve.

Thanks a lot!
Do you happen to know how can I add Emacs global keybindings to Lubuntu?
