X Fonts

lack of unicode fonts suck.

apt-get install xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi xfonts-base xfonts-encodings xfonts-intl-japanese xfonts-intl-japanese-big xfonts-scalable xfonts-terminus xfonts-utils


Recompile x without config_vt, so that we work with the chrome-OS kernel.


apt-get install locales

set up en-utf8, jp-utf8, and C locales.

synaptic mouse


The .xinitrc for my user should switch us to dvorak, and pull in the xmodmap for this keyboard.

setxkbmap -variant dvorak
if [ -s ~/.Xmodmap ]; then
   xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap


This makes the search button, and the control buttons control:

clear control
clear mod4
keycode 133=Super_L
add control = Control_L Control_R Super_L
add mod4 = Super_R
