    Does anyone else use Colemak in KDE?  It seems that setting the layout in the KDE interface is broken; the capslock key behaves as both the capslock and backspace keys.  I opened a bug report but wondered if anyone else experienced this and knew of a workaround.

    That's odd, and does seem like a KDE issue. Have you found any option settings regarding the CapsLock key though? Could be that it gets defined once in the layout and again in some (non-xkb?) options that lead to this odd behavior.
