There are at least two ways:
1. Select a proper keyboard in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
the file shoukld have a section like this for a Norwegian keyboard. For
another language, replace "no" with whatever you need.
Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "no"
However, the FR ships without a xorg.conf file. So some experimentation
is needed to see if it honors the file, and if you need to install extra
keyboard files that not necessarily comes with the device.
2. Remap the keyboard using xmodmap
The FR ships with xmodmap, so you can write a script that uses several
xmodmap commands, one per key that differ from english layout. Then
arrange so the script is executed whenever X starts on your freerunner.
