# Chromebook Pixel keymap for Linux console. To install:
# sudo curl -fL -o /opt/pixel.kmap https://gist.githubusercontent.com/stefansundin/6987698/raw/pixel.kmap
# sudo vim /etc/rc.local
# loadkeys /opt/pixel.kmap
# NOTE: You have to use these commands in a real terminal, if you try to use them in X
# you will get the error "Couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console"
# dumpkeys prints the current configuration
# You can load the default keymap again with "sudo loadkeys -d"
# If you can't find /usr/share/keymaps/defkeymap.map, you must first (before loading any new keymap!):
# sudo mkdir /usr/share/keymaps
# dumpkeys > defkeymap.map
# sudo mv defkeymap.map /usr/share/keymaps/
# showkey prints keycodes (like xev)
# sudo loadkeys console-keymap.kmap
