Hi, I'm running an updated fresh native install of fedora 21 on my HP choromebook 14 netbook (Falco model). Everything seems fine except I can't manage to open a virtual console.. tried ALT - Fn combinations and CTRL - ALT - Fn ones. The only thing I managed to do was opening tty4 (which is completely working) with CTRL - ALT- F4 but when then using again any other CTRL -ALT -Fn combination I'm neither able to go back to the x session console or any other (I just get symbols on the screen).

Any suggestion please? Many thanks!

see this wiki for a solution, but it maybe outdate (and not sure about if the file must be created in /etc/udev/hwdb.d or in a different folder on a Fedora system):
