Morphius running Aurora 40 (ublue)

Greetings all! Find it somewhat ironic that I’m running an atomic operating system on a Yoga C13 chromebook that previously ran Google’s atomic operating system, but here we are.
After install and enrolling the secure boot key from the Aurora project, I found myself wanting to run WeirdTreeThing’s scripts to get keybindings correct and audio control working.

Just to note here, I’m definitely new to using u-blue distros, but interested in what the experience will be like on a chrultrabook.

I made sure that python and git were the latest, then ran through the cros keyboard map script and got these errors- any idea on how to run something like this on an atomic/immutable distro like Aurora? Do I need to use rpm-ostree or toolbox or something?
I appreciate the help.

You should talk to @Owen he was the first to do this with Submarine

@Owen thoughts? I’m looking into the documentation here on how to possibly have the keyboard binding and audio script pre-run at build time, but I’m far out of my depth.

Hmm, not sure as audio worked for me out of the box (Bluebird Chromebook, stock firmware, UBlue Bluefin).

I’m no immutable expert, but it isn’t a package manager/rpm-ostree problem. The problem is that it’s a read only file system. I would look into how to get a typical [python] script to work properly on immutable distros, although it may not be possible to get this to work. For keyboard remap, I would just use a remap application.

Sorry I couldn’t be more help, try searching more broadly for potential fixes.

we shall see…as I learn how to figure this stuff out GitHub - al12gamer/aurora-cb: u-blue Aurora with a focus on working on my Thinkpad C13 Yoga Gen 1

Good luck!

Not sure if Aurora uses ostree to manage atomic os changes. But using os-tree command should enable you to modify /usr partition on Fedora Kinonite/Silverblue.

If aurora is like silverblue, you can create an overlay using systemd-sysext with the audio files. It’s not that hard. I can help someone update my fork if they want.

The audio now seems to be working with a new update, but it seems impossible to map keyboard keys

What is the issue with keyd?

Similar issue. I haven’t tried any of the systemd overlay stuff you mentioned yet, but the script failed when I ran it. I’ll try again this evening.
