Apple keyboard function keys on ubuntu/kubuntu Jaunty

Friday afternoon quickie :)

To get your usb Apple keyboard function keys working on ubuntu/kubuntu Jaunty you need to do the following as super user :)

yourpc:~# echo 2 > /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode

It changed since Intrepid.

Thank you! Just what I needed.

When you want to do this permanently use:
echo "options hid_apple fnmode=2" >> /etc/modprobe.d/apple-keyboard
