Hi,
I have a strange problem: I installed gentoo/gnome on my new laptop but now I realised that my Fn and Crtl keys are swaped .... On my keybord the Crtl key is on the bottom right and on the left is the Fn key. I have heaps of preferences in the Tweak tool but i cant figure out the right one to change that!

Any one an idea?

In most cases, the Fn key is managed at least in part by the system firmware, since it is used to reclassify regular keys to their BIOS-special-function purposes. Check your BIOS to see if there is a preference to swap the location of those keys.
