remap special keys with Linux (presentation, start call, end call between F12 and DEL)

HP Recommended
EliteBook 735 G6
Linux

Hi,

I'm using Linux on my wonderful new EliteBook 735 G6 and I'm trying to figure out how to reassign the three special keys "presentation", "start call" and "end call" between F12 and DEL.

 

I tried creating a file /etc/udev/hwdb.d/90-custom-keyboard.hwdb with:

evdev:atkbd:dmi:bvn*:bvr*:bd*:svn*:pn*:pvr*
 KEYBOARD_KEY_65=insert

This should assign INSERT to the right key "end call".

And after a reboot this first looked good for a few programs like vim. But soon I realized, that the "end call" key not just emits keycode 65, but also the scancodes for CTRL_L and ALT_L.

So pressing it now emits "CTRL_L + ALT_L + INSERT" and most programs don't accept this as simple INSERT.

 

Same to the left key "presentation". And the middle key "start call" emmits ALT_L + SUPER (Win-Key).

 

So is there a way to make those keys emit just one scancode?

Or is there a tool for Linux to catch three scancodes (CTRL_L/SUPER + ALT_L + 6d/66/65) and convert it into one scancode (e.g. INSERT)?

 

What I tried before:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HP_EliteBook_745_G5#Function_Keys

https://md.pastleo.me/s/archlinux-setup-notes# (section "Keyboard keymap")

 

 

Thanks!
