Post by Pollito » Thu Sep 12, 2019 12:59 am

Hi, I success installed arcolinux on my old white macbook 5 2 but i have to use a usb keyboard because the internal keyboard just work a few keys and are swapped, I notice that when i execute xinput list on terminal theres 2 devices with the internal keyboard name.
How to fix this issue?

What keyboard did you select in Calamares?
Is it a matter of select the correct one?
Just thinking out loud.
