Easily disable caps lock in Ubuntu 13.04

With Vim I program
When caps lock is I am lost
Anger key must go

I hate the caps lock button.

It does have its uses, and no, not only for YELLING IN EMAILS, but also for accessibility.

Today I just had enough with pressing it by accident in Vim, so I decided to disable it at the OS level. It turns out it’s super easy in Ubuntu 13.04:

All Settings > Keyboard Layout > Options > And choose caps lock is disabled

Alternatively you could map the caps lock to the escape key for Vim only. I prefer getting rid of it completely though. Happy coding!
