Hello everyone.
I have recently been assigned a HP Probook 640 laptop at work. It has Ubuntu installed (currently running Ubuntu Impish 21.10). I usually use it with an external USB keyboard and screen, but when not, I realized the they keyboard map is incorrect. I went to the settings > keyboard > designs and checked the keyboard model. When installing it was detected as a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv5, which is not the model I am using. I browsed the list of models available, and certainly Hewlett-Packard Probook * was not in it. Not any model of the probook series. Clearly the Pavillion dv5 is quite similar but different in some ways (the probook has a couple more keys at the bottom). Therefore I am not able to use shift, FN, ctrl or "win" keys.
I already tried using the "options" button, but it does not work, since the problem is not how keys are assigned but if keys are recognized or visible for the system.

I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and if there is any way to, I don't know, import the right keyboard model map or edit an existing/similar one. I could post any pictures or terminal exits if needed, of course.

Many thanks in advance to anyone with a helping hand.
