I installed arch Linux on my Chromebook and I'm using LXDE. I looked into re-mapping the search key/caps lock key to the super/windows key and was able to do that with "setxkbmap -option caps:super" Now I want to do the same for the F keys.

Chromebok keys

And I want to be able to use them as normal F keys when holding the Search/Capslock (Now mapped to super (This is going to get confusing :))
