Using Apple Keyboard in Linux (Fedora)

My Apple Keyboard

Few Days Ago i received my Apple Keyboard and i am enjoying typing on it, but having to hold down the Fn key then tap one of the F-keys to get F-keys working was irritating.

a simple solution to get it working just add this to your /etc/rc.local file

echo 2 > /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode

and F-keys will start to work properly, enjoy

Update :- update for recent kernels,
