    This is sad. I’ve been happily using these key swap for ages. Now CapsLock toggles upper/lower case with each press.  You can imagine how frustrating that is for an emacs devotee.

    So did a previous version of NoMachine work for you? Could you tell me which one?

    Do both server and client run on Linux?

    The client would have been 5.50~ and the server was 4.6.4

    Yes, both server and client are running linux.  Centos 6.7 on the server, Ubuntu-14.04 on the client

    You’re right. I’m going to reopen TR07L04481 as it isn’t completely solved. In the meantime can you retry to follow this suggestion: https://www.nomachine.com/forums/topic/caps-ctrl-swap-still-a-problem-tr07l04481#post-5888

    successfully ran

    • setxkbmap -option “” -option “ctrl:swapcaps” -option “terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp“

    Yes, that used to work but now, from an ubuntu client, it has no effect.  I disconnected from my session, ran that on my desktop, restarted nxserver, reconnected and no change

    If you are sharing the physical display of server Centos 6.7, be sure “swapcaps” is set on that display too (“setxkbmap -print” will show the XKB configuation strings).
