I have several Dell XPS13 laptops running Gentoo Linux. The latest one (which I bought used) has an Indian Rupee symbol beside the "4" on the 4 key and a Euro symbol beside the "5" on the 5 key. None of the F1/F2/F3/etc keys are working correctly so I think I need to change the keymap. How can I figure out which keymap to use?


There was a BIOS setting for changing the Function key behavior and switching it completely fixed this.

  • @meatspace, not for 2 days. – stackoverflowrocks Feb 4 '15 at 23:58
  • @Ramhound, it was called "Function Key Setting" or something like that. I would have to reboot to find out for sure. – stackoverflowrocks Feb 4 '15 at 23:59
