I have installed Ubuntu Mate 16.04 Lts 32bit on my Toshiba Chromebook. The keys on the top wont work as they should. Arrows, light up and down, sound key wont work. I can’t fint out how to change it. On a Chromebook there is no F keys, I guess this is the problem.
have you checked Ask Ubuntu out?:
I search with Google… But askUbuntu. COM I’m not sure. Thanks for tip. I do not use crouton and dual boot, only Ubuntu Mate. I’m a little scared to run script from internet that I don’t know What do.
Just for reference AskUbuntu is supported by Canonical and a excellent source of information about Ubuntu and its flavors.
Another source is Googlubuntu.
Sorry, but I have not ran Ubuntu in a chromebook and can’t help you with that. I can just point
me too, I have no idea what one looks like to be honest!.
You could try FascinatingCaptain’s tweaked keyboard mapping found in his Github repo:

Thank you. I’m sorry to say that I changes my Linux distro. I really liked Ubuntu Mate, but on my Chromebook I decided to change to GalliumOS Linux. This distro is made for Chromebooks. I think I’m going to try Ubuntu Mate on my Raspberry Pi 3, when I get it up and running…
Thanks for all help
You’re welcome, @Laffen_EK. And no need to apologize. Unless, of course, you say “I’m going to switch to Windows”
No, I was sorry that I could not use Ubuntu Mate on my chromebook. Because I liked this distro. But I dig up my daugthers old HP Probook 4330s from 2012, and Ubuntu Mate run perfectly on that machine
Sorry to hear about the chromebook, but looks like something good came out of it: the Probook got a new lease on life and you ended up using Ubuntu MATE after all.
Big surprise (for me) After tweak’ing with Ubuntu Mate on the HP I realized that it would work on my Toshiba Chromebook to. So I tried again and now I have 2 new/old pc’s with Ubuntu Mate that funktion very good! So my donation is payed.
Fantastic. On both accounts!
Another workaround is to use the layout from GalliumOS on Ubuntu MATE. Works in 22.04 in my Acer Chromebook.
