keymap modification needed?

There should be a reference to KEYMAP on this page?
-- Doru001 (talk) 10:05, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

I just added a link to KEYMAP under the related articles section.

ttf-liberation package

The article refers to the ttf-liberation package for the Liberation Sans Narrow font. But Liberation Sans Narrow is not included in the package.
-- DonJaime (talk) 12:01, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

You seem to be correct. I have removed it from the list. It would be nice to see a package get put in the AUR or for the font to get added to the package. I see that ttf-liberation1AUR exists in the AUR. Maybe that package has it?
In any case, I'm closing this now.
