Norwegian keyboard on the N950

The N950 is delivered with a keyboard without Norwegian keys, so I decided to map holding the function/arrow key and pressing comma (,), period (.) or asterix (*) to ø, æ and å, respectively.

I you are Norwegian and just want this to work straight away, you can do the following on your device:

ssh root@localhost
wget http://dragly.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/rm-680
cp /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/nokia_vndr/rm-680 /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/nokia_vndr/rm-680-backup
cp rm-680 /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/nokia_vndr/
setxkbmap -model nokiarm680 -layout us

And that should do the trick. The keys are mapped as follows:

FN + .             æ
FN + ,             ø
FN + *             å
FN + SHIFT + .     Æ
FN + SHIFT + ,     Ø
FN + SHIFT + *     Å

If you’re speaking a different language and just want to edit the keymap manually, you can open up the rm-680 keymap file Continue reading Norwegian keyboard on the N950
