How do you remap a key to the Caps Lock key in Xubuntu? - Ask Ubuntu
Another way:
<code class="language-bash">sudo vi /etc/default/keyboard</code>
then find the line that starts with XKBOPTIONS, and add ctrl:nocaps to make Caps Lock an additional Control key or ctrl:swapcaps to swap Caps Lock and Control.

For example, mine looks like
code class="language-bash">XKBOPTIONS="lv3:ralt_alt,compose:menu,ctrl:nocaps"</code>
hen run
<code class="language-bash">sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration<code>
The reason this way is better is that it will take effect on the virtual consoles (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+F1) as well as in the graphical desktop.

authentication - lxqt polkit asking for root's password when account is locked - Super User
This actually *was* the problem after all. I'd forgotten to add 'vagrant' to the 'sudo' group because he had his own entry in /etc/sudoers.


I managed to get it to work correctly. I wasn't added to the "wheel" group. I fixed it by running:

sudo usermod -a -G wheel [user]
