I am using an Asus C200 chromebook running Ubuntu 16.04, and I want to know how to remap the F10 button to Volume up, and F9 button to volume down.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


This worked for me:

cd /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbol Make a copy of the file srvr_ctrl somewhere you can restore it if you want

Open it with your favorite editor using sudo sudo vim srvr_ctrl

Change the lines symbols[Group1]= [ F10, F10, F10, F10, XF86_Switch_VT_10 ] To symbols[Group1]= [ XF86AudioRaiseVolume, F10, F10, F10, XF86_Switch_VT_10 ] And symbols[Group1]= [ F9, F9, F9, F9, XF86_Switch_VT_9 ] To symbols[Group1]= [ XF86AudioLowerVolume, F9, F9, F9, XF86_Switch_VT_9 ] Now save, exit, and re-login to your account
