Fixing Dell Inspiron 3162 PgUp/PgDn/Home/End keys issue in Ubuntu

  1. Create file /etc/udev/hwdb.d/95-custom-keyboard.hwdb
  2. File contents must be

    # Dell Inspiron 3162
    evdev:atkbd:dmi:bvn*:bvr*:bd*:svnDell*:pnInspiron*3162:pvr*
     KEYBOARD_KEY_c7=!home
     KEYBOARD_KEY_cf=!end
     KEYBOARD_KEY_c9=!pageup
     KEYBOARD_KEY_d1=!pagedown


  3. Important! There must be a space before KEYBOARD_KEY keyword.
     
  4. After editing the file, run the hwdb re-index:

    sudo udevadm hwdb --update && sudo sudo udevadm trigger
