[Solved] Loadkeys fails with syntax error

I'm trying to get my three multimedia buttons to work in the console. After reading this guide, I decided to try using loadkeys with the following file:

keycode 113 = F70
keycode 114 = F71
keycode 115 = F72
string F70 = "amixer set Master toggle"
string F71 = "amixer set Master 1-"
string F72 = "amixer set Master 1+"

I ran the following command, and received the following output:

$ loadkeys /usr/local/share/kbd/keymaps/personal.map
Loading /usr/local/share/kbd/keymaps/personal.map
/usr/local/share/kbd/keymaps/personal.map:1: syntax error
syntax error in map file
key bindings not changed

The error seems simple enough. Apparently I'm using incorrect syntax on line 1. However, I have not been able to find what's wrong with my syntax. I tried changing the contents of the file to see what it would accept. The only way I was able to get it to load without an error was to use a completely blank file.

In case it's of any use, here's the contents of "dumpfile"

My question is simply how can I make this work? Is there something wrong with the syntax of my file? How can I correct it?

Re: [Solved] Loadkeys fails with syntax error

Looks like I just needed to run the loadkeys command as super user. The guide said to run it as a regular user and I didn't bother to try running it as super user because it didn't give an authorization error. For some reason it gave a syntax error when I ran it as a regular user. Oh well, it's working now that I used the almighty sudo.
