Swapping Caps Lock and Control (Left) keys in X Window

Temporarily, from the shell commandline:

xmodmap -e "remove lock = Caps_Lock"
xmodmap -e "remove control = Control_L"
xmodmap -e "add control = Caps_Lock"
xmodmap -e "add lock = Control_L"

Permanantly, in (Debian) xorg.conf:

Add the Section:

Section "InputDevice"
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"

(You'll need to restart X for this to take effect)
