I've been fumbling with xkbmap for a while, and I can't figure out how to remap the Print Screen button to Home. It's as if the us keymap just doesn't mention the PRSC key code at all. I can't use xmodmap because switching keyboards destroys my configuration.

How can I remap the PrtScr key to Home and the Insert key to End using xkbmap?

    See Pablo's answer here. The keys defs you're looking for are in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc, scroll down to hidden partial alphanumeric_keys and you'll find them. HTH. – don_crissti Jul 10 '15 at 22:43
