I did not say that you can not attach a keyboard, but that it is
pointless. You can't travel on the bus with that. It breaks the
lightness feature of such a small thing.

Either you make it work as it is, or drop the tablet and buy another,
if possible.

Build your own replacement "alt" key, e.g.
logged in: use "bind" for bash,
or hardcore: bind a kdb-scancode to a system-keycode.

Entry Point: Google: "linux console keyboard mapping"

udev solution, esp the second link:
