    First add the layout :

    Main Menu: >System > Preferences > Keyboard

    This opens the Keyboard Preferences.

    Go to the second tab: Layouts

    Click the "Add" button (or skip to the next section if Colemak is installed).

    Select Country: United States

    Select Variants: USA Colemak

    You should now see Colemak in your installed layouts.

    **********************************************

    Click "Options"

    You will see a list, including "CapsLock key behavior". Click to expand.

    The ninth option down should be "Make CapsLock an additional Backspace".

    This setting works across ALL installed layouts, not just the active one.

    Cheers :)

    Neat! Maybe you should repost this in the Contributions forum? I consider it a worthy candidate.  :)
