Preparations

  • Boot the archlinux installer from the USB medium

Set up a wireless connection

Since you don't have any ethernet, you'll need to manually configure your network before starting the setup. Here, we assume that the wlan is not encrypted:

ip link set wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid "your_wlan_essid"
dhcpcd wlan0

If your wlan is encrypted, follow the instructions in the Beginner's Guide. If it's not encrypted but requires to login at a web portal, you can use elinks to enter your credentials.

Configure all special keys

Create a file /lib/udev/keymaps/umid-se containing:

0xE2 cyclewindows      # Fn+Esc
0xEE battery           # Fn+Q
0xDF sleep             # Fn+W
0xD5 switchvideomode   # Fn+E
0xF0 record            # Fn+R
0xF6 camera            # Fn+T
0xF7 f22               # Fn+Y (touchpad toggle)
0xF9 brightnessdown    # Fn+A
0xF8 brightnessup      # Fn+S
0xA0 mute              # Fn+D
0xAE volumedown        # Fn+F
0xB0 volumeup          # Fn+G
0xE0 bluetooth         # Fn+H
0xFB wlan              # Fn+J
Edit /lib/udev/rules.d/95-keymap.rules adding this after
Template error: are you trying to use the = sign? Visit Help:Template#Escape template-breaking characters for workarounds.
:
ENV{DMI_VENDOR}=="UMiDCorp", ATTR{[dmi/id]product_name}=="M-BOOK", RUN+="keymap $name umid-se"

The above vendor and product IDs can be found under /sys/class/dmi/id/. Reboot to apply the changes.
