Hello falks ;

Was searching for quite sometimes for a decent Linux distro to use on my chromeboo (Lenovo Thinkpad 13). Tried almost every Linux out there, including GalliumOS that prides itself for being tailormade for chromebooks. All had issues, until I found you guys.
Sparky Linux is indeed sparkling. Installed the system to a USB 3, and it's flying.
I do though have a couple of qyestions:
1. How do I add a secondary keyboard (Hebrew) and switch bewtween the two?
2. Do you have a "chromelike" keyboard layout
3. how can assign a "delete" to one of the keys (chromebooks don't have a deletre/insert key)
thanks for a great job


What flavour of Sparky (Mate, LXQT, etc.) ?

For my own curiosity, did you use the standard Calamares installer?

To change the existing keyboard in LXQT you can add a language to the existing keyboard via preferences  Menu>Preferences>LXQT Settings>Keyboard and Mouse   Testing and Stable have the same keystrokes.  (NOTE:  I did not install, I just checked it out. up to install)   I am  not sure how that would work out if you put in a 2nd keyboard via USB. 
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.
