Welcome to LQ!

I do not understand your question. What do you want to do?
What is a "keyboard panel control"?
Please give us more information.

If you mean you want to change you keyboard layout or keymapping (what characters are input when you strike particular keys), this may help: https://wiki.debian.org/Keyboard

Special keys like volume or play on a specific model number?

I too am not quite sure what you want to do and what you want to do it to! But if it involves something on the panel, then forget the Debian wiki. Look in the menu for the Gnome help tool and if that doesn't answer the question, try
http://wiki.gnome.org/
http://help.gnome.org/users/
or come back here with more information.

"Lockey" way too early to say... maybe just feedback for searchers, unless we're talking about a rocket ships keys?

Hi;
Thanks to all for pointers which I will follow.
Meanwhile further details -
I run Debian 8. At the top of the screen to the left of the usual controls (Brightness etc.)
there is a possibility to switch between two keyboard layouts - English (GB) or English (US).
I wish to use only the (US) version (for the character @). The panel includes an option
'Show keyboard layout'. A layout is displayed without key identification.

Look in the menu for Gnome's keyboard configuration tool and remove the layout you don't use. With only one driver, the panel won't display the indicator.

Lockey,

The information you require is listed under Keyboard configuration here:

https://wiki.debian.org/Keyboard

Somebody who wanted to change from a US keyboard layout to a German one used this:

http://benohead.com/debian-change-th...m-the-console/

I hope this is of help to you.
