#Custom Keymap (Lenovo T430)

This will apply settings for both system console and Xorg server.

  • CapsLock will become an extra Esc
  • Home will be switched with PageUp
  • End will be switched with PageDown

This makes sense for the Lenovo T430, where PageUp and PageDown are right next to the arrow keys.

Filepaths are Arch-specific

##Usage

make
sudo make install
# Linux-specific (and language-independent) keys
#
# This file describes function keys, console switching keys,
# keypad, cursor keys, and SysRq, ScrollLock, Pause
#
# It does not use the AltGr modifier, so that the user can opt
# to have both Alt keys produce the same effect.
# As a consequence, the Hex_* keys are missing, as are
# control altgr keycode 83 = Boot
# control altgr keycode 111 = Boot
#
# One culture-specific item that will be overridden in many keymaps
# is the KP_Period: many countries have a KP_Comma instead.
#
# One user-preference item will be the function of the Delete key.
#
# Old keyboards have 10 function keys, and keymaps have
# sometimes used shift+F1 = F11, and sometimes shift+F1 = F13.
# Here we assume an enhanced keyboard (with 12 function keys).
