I've just installed a fresh Ubuntu. For the last 2 years I've used a system that allowed me to use my Caps Lock key as a keyboard modifier to get the character I want.


For isntance, if I wanted the GBP Pound sterling £ symbol I could type


Caps Lock + - + l and it would output £


If I wanted a German umlaut (ü ö ä Ä Ü ) I could type


Caps Lock + u + : and it would output ü


How is this achieved? (I assume something with xmodmap)

I don't think you even need xmodmap, you can just set you Compose Key to <CapsLock>.



This post explains how to do it on some Ubuntu flavours:
