Reclaim mod keys
So you learned bash, and you set up a hotkey deamon of some sort and your ready to edit your dotfiles like a good /g/ fren to have a “productive” system.
But, all your programs use all the easy to remember hotkeys. You only have ctrl and alt and 36 keys. Are you suppose to ctrl+alt+shift+o+m to open your music player?
Whatever is a newfren to do?
Its simple we kill capslock and reclaim super.
Install “xmodmap” and “xcape”
Make the following file:
clear lock keycode 66 = Hyper\_R add Mod3 = Hyper\_R
add these lines to your autostart script (such as bspwmrc)
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap xcape -e 'Super\_L=Super\_L|Shift\_L|space'
and rewrite your run menu keybinding to be super+shift+space (sxhkdrc)
super + shift + space rofi -show && ~/.config/wallpaper.sh_
And you have 2 new mod keys, super and hyper. And you to can be a cool haker with 20 workspaces and a tiling wm. Btw sxhkd calls hyper “mod3”.
