Remapping keyboard on recent distros that use evdev+hal

As you may have read on the previous post my Lenovo 3000 C200 needs a “patch” for its keyboard on X since slash/question/degree key is in an unusual place.

After a little research (grep -r saved my day) I found out that the configuration that used to reside on /etc/X11/xorg.conf is now on /etc/default/console-setup so the same rule for overriding keymaps is still valid. The corresponding configuration for recent distros is something like this:


XKBMODEL="abnt2"
XKBLAYOUT="br+lenovo(addslashes)"
XKBVARIANT=""
XKBOPTIONS=""

Recent update: If you want further explanation of the X keyboard configurations an excellent guide (and by the way the one I used to figure out this) is “An Unreliable Guide to XKB Configuration” by Doug Palmer (Also available here)
