HowTo entitled How to move the right Shift key is excellent, but the mappings are different on Asus 904HA EeePCs. Thus, the following script can be saved as the contents of
setupkbd.sh, instead of the code that is given on that page, whenever one is trying to create a remapping script for Asus 904HA EeePCs. This script does not bother to try and change the functionality involving the 'Down' ←→ 'Right', or 'Fn-Down' (PgDn) ←→ 'Fn-Right' (End) mappings. Thus, the only keys that would need to be physically “swapped” on the keyboard, involve the 'Up' and 'Shift_R' keys. Another remapping was added to satisfy Emacs users, involving a swap between 'Caps_Lock' and 'Control_L'.
