The external keyboard configuration from
Preferences|Keyboard|Modifier Keys is not working properly on my
Sierra mac. It works fine for the same and other external/USB keyboards on my two
El Capitan machines.
The following http://rainer.4950.net/2009/09/30/resetting-the-usb-keyboard-type-on-mac-osx/ recommends to disconnect the external keyboard and then delete
However after having done so - and verified the file no longer exists:
$ls -l /Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboardtype.plist ls: /Library/Preferences/com.apple.keyboardtype.plist: No such file or directory
But the external keyboard still shows up:
I am trying to get back to the "Unrecognized keyboard" dialog - in the hopes of fixing key mapping problems only on this
Sierra machine: specifically
The end goal is for the following to actually work properly: i.e. disabling caps-lock and swapping
Instead those customized settings are presently ignored and only the default mappings are actually enabled.
