Thanks for the help. I am a relatively new user. I am working through the Odin Project and want to remap the Caps Lock and ESC keys for ease of use in VIM.  I looked over the GUI Keyboard tool, and could not understand the options. 

Any help appreciated.

I found this article very helpful. https://www.jveweb.net/en/archives/2010/11/making-better-use-of-the-caps-lock-key-in-linux.html#jveweb_en_017_03   

I used the information on Xmodmap. I had to reboot before it worked.
