i’m running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and want to use an apple keyboard (wired). No i’m facing some problems whith making my custom settings permanent. I’m using the ‘English internationl, AltGr dead keys’ layout.
The keyboard has some keys swapped and i set the settings manually in the
/sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/ folder. I set
1. After this everything works like intended. But after rebooting the settings are back to the default. I have to reset everything manually after each reboot.
For now i wrote a little shell script which would do it but that’s not the best way i think.
How can i make these settings persistent?
Here is Solutions:
I had a similar issue with a Varmilo VA109M Keyboard (for some reason it registers as an apple keyboard).
I’m running Ubuntu 20.04, and everything worked after doing these steps from this guide:
Run the following command to append the configuration line to the file
/etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.confcreating it if necessary:
$ echo options hid_apple fnmode=0 | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf
Trigger copying the configuration into the initramfs bootfile.
$ sudo update-initramfs -u -k all
$ sudo reboot
You may need to
options into your
/etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf file, to setup your keyboard to your liking.
It appears that you can create
/etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf and add the entries you need fixing in there, such as,
options hid_apple fnmode=2
NB: This assumes the
hid_apple module is already being loaded.
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
