Hello all, loving Linux Mint. First time poster, long time reader. Keyboard question below.
I have an apple keyboard, and of course the function keys do not function as I am accustomed. So I found this workaround to make them function like normal keys.
1. Edit or create the file /etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf, e.g.:
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf
2. Add this line to the previously open file.
options hid_apple fnmode=2
3. Save the file and execute the following command to notify hid_apple module to reload it's configuration.
sudo update-initramfs -u
Now that I have done that, is there a way to make the f9-f12 keys work with their original "apple" design of being volume buttons? Before I figured out the aforementioned fix, I got used to using them, and would like to get them back.
Any tips would be appreciated. (Version = Helena)
