Ho yes, sorry for my mistake about itZ, lol I’m half blind
So I understand this is old bug for keymapping feature just not related to EndeavourOs.
Thanks so much and so sorry for trigger you abouy minor bug…
$ localectl status
System Locale: LANG=it_IT.UTF-8
VC Keymap: it *<# this after manual editing vconsole.conf, previous is found as it2 according to available map files shown by * localectl list-keymaps|grep it
X11 Layout: it
I see no “Dell model” keyboard setup of any kind and I go to find next some Dell-keyb-related stuff into my /usr/share/X11/xkb/geometry/ I found file named “dell” so I look into this file but nothing looking for specific Inspirion brand model. This file look “universal” and a little bit old, generic.
Is not a big issue, because on X window all Fn+F1 to 8 and Up/Dn keys is correct mapped, I think for automatic remapping by X server stuff, but not much clear how for me, anyway is much to read and understand if we go to deep
Also I try to see dumpkeys with some flags but it only load when you go to tty and in terminal emulator print error “Couldn’t get a file descriptor referring to the console.”
Now really don’t know if it is absolute need to setting proper keyboard model when we are under Calamares setup…
Maybe some kind of kernel module detection (I think to laptop modules) trigger X window server to override keymap table for itself and not for system wide config,because above old or standard (like “pc104”) models is set.
So maybe X remaps special keys according to some other setting rules (I think evdev).
Of course stuff like brightness adjusting (Fn+F6/F7 on my laptop) don’t make anything when I’m under one fo tty2-6.
Big stuff to learn for me how keymap really work on Linux…
Anyway no real issue but better is to know how work! lol
