I also use the power button to forcibly shutown, but maybe someone else
has a tip on ACPI shutdown.

To "commit" your configuration changes you will need to copy the changed
files to storage, this would probably be at /rw/config/18.11/input_filter
in your case, the version number is available from an "Inspect" terminal
in /VERSION file.

A new release is coming soon, but I believe the only additional layout
will be French. Creating Swedish should be easy though, just copy
/config/de.chargen to /config/se_sv.chargen, make your changes there,
edit /config/input_filter to change which chargen files are loaded, and
if that works, copy those files to /rw so that they are loaded again at
next boot.

Thank you for the kind words,
