Switch Fn and Ctrl keys
#1
I've been enjoying my PBP for the past week but I've been wondering if it was possible to switch the Fn and the left Ctrl keys? I've found a few options in the Keyboard->Advanced section but nothing on the Fn key.

I'm going through trying to remap some keys right now myself!

You probably want to use `xmodmap` in the terminal. `man xmodmap` has a few examples of swapping keys.

Check out this guide:

I decided I wanted to install xev (pacman -S xorg-xev) to see what the keycodes are. But I had to update my mirrors before it would let me do that.

That looked like this:

1. `pacman -f` (this took a really long time)
2. `pacman -Syuu` (to update pacman with the new mirrors
3. `pacman -S xorg-xev` to actually install the thing

Nice, thanks. I'll read through the manual of xmodmap. I'm not sure what you mean by your first pacman command. `-f` does not exist and `-F` needs a target.
