As I'd like to use my tablet as a "thin-client" i.e. desktop terminal to my server, I need keys like "return" to act as "escape" and "lock" as "delete" etc. So I changed the mappings in "/system/usr/keylayout/asuspec.kl".

In the case someone else would be interested in remapping their keyboard, I have compiled a list of scan-codes associated with each physical key.
This though with the exception of the "Fn" key, which I suspect function on a purely hardware based level to alter key scan-codes.
This list is based on a "nordic" layout (not sure if physical layout differs?), but I refer to each key as R#C#, row number and column number, starting from 0.

So I have been having some trouble getting exactly the experience I wanted.
Turns out that either the VNC client apps didn't support my nordic keyboard layout properly, or it did not support meta keys, or it did not support the altGr key.

I've been through 20+ clients testing this, until I finally decided to try out Jump Desktop, it is a paid app, but everything just works.
This post is written from my fedora20 KVM vm accessed through Jump Desktop VNC.
I can write æøå, @ with AltGr+2 etc. so far everything just works.

Slight latency compared to desktop VNC, but for coding/compiling and browsing it is no problem at all.

Now I just have to get my hands on a micro hdmi adapter so I can try an external monitor, but so far I am very pleased with my TF701T
Solid substitute for my old laptop for my needs, AND I can just pop the screen off and I have a brilliant android tablet

One of the things that realy troubles me is that all the functionality of the first raw (wifi, bt etc) works without using the FN keys so you can mistakenly turn off the wifi or BT accidently while working or typing fast, happend to me quite a lot of times.
Is there a way to force these keys to be only working when the FN keys is being used? (something like the Shift key functionality)

Also, could you post please your ki file please?
