    I'm new to Linux, and I've run into a problem with keyboard caps lock. When using Linux, I frequently get into a mode where I must have inadvertently hit some key sequence, and a form of caps lock comes on that I cannot turn off. No matter what I do (short of rebooting), I can't get to some of the special characters. For example, I cannot get to the / or \ characters, only the ? or | characters on my keyboard. Obviously, this means I can't do much when I get in this mode. Can anyone tell me how to restore my keyboard functionality without having to reboot? Thanks!
