 Try to provide less humorous questions for us, I don't think I'm
supposed to have this much fun via email.

What led up to the no_caps problem? Is it the same in X and on the
virtual terminals? (<ctrl>+<alt>+<F1> to check, and <ctrl>+<alt>+<F7> to
get back to X)

maybe try
$ setxkmap us -option

There are lots of tools for examining disks, for this problem you might
want to try baobab. If you've really got giant files that you don't know
about you'll spot them easily.

P.S. just saw your new message, you should try:
$sudo du -h /media/For_Linux/.Trashes
