Fixing Apple Keyboard Mapping for Ubuntu

2015-01-14 | #solution, #ubuntu

I do like my apple keyboard, but Ubuntu switches things around it shouldn't.

To get rid of this, well ... nonsense, the easiest way for me (using a German aluminium version) was to include the following lines into my /etc/rc.local:

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

echo 0 > /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/iso_layout

After that the keyboard should feel defaulty again.
