Ubuntu – How to toggle off Caps Lock by Shift key

capslockkeyboard

I get used to turn Caps Lock off by Shift in Windows. That way I never need to check whether Caps Lock is on when I just want to type a first letter in uppercase. But how can I do the same in Ubuntu?

First install gnome-tweak-tool by using this command:

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

Now open 'Tweaks' application, then go to : Keyboard & Mouse → Keyboard → Additional Layout Options → Miscellaneous compatibility options → check 'Shift cancels Caps Lock'. Close window.

Works fine in Ubuntu 20.04.
