I'm trying to use an uppercase-only terminal on /dev/ttyS0 with Ubuntu 9.10. It's sort of working if I create a user with an all-uppercase password. I've tried using stty to convert all input on /dev/ttyS0 to lowercase but it doesn't appear to have any effect. I'm using the command line below:

stty -F/dev/ttyS0 iuclc

For now, I've made uppercase copies of the command line utilities so the uppercase terminal can run them but I'd really like to make Ubuntu case-insensitive. Is there any way to do this?

Why do you want to do this? Case sensitivity is part of what make Ubuntu secure
