Looks like some distros don't have it by default. My Fedora has it, but 
Arch does not. However, I don't think that means it won't recognize it 
if it's added. I seem to recall creating /etc/vconsole.conf being one of 
the steps of Arch installation if you don't use the US keyboard layout. 
Still, as I recall, I think it only works for the text console, not the 
graphical one, as the desktop layout is controlled at the X server 
level. I do know that changing the keyboard layout in MATE is not 
editing /etc/vconsole.conf, and I'm fairly certain that GNOME isn't 
using that file either.
