I am wondering if there is a shortcut or where and how to active the F-keys on a QWERTZ build-in MBP keyboard.

Any suggestions ?!

  • You mean they don't work at all? For example, if you press F11 in your browser it doesn't go fullscreen?

I figured it out myself! I simply need to use the fnkey, in combination with F1, F2, F3keys ..

Reason: Fkeys (Function-keys) are primarily assigned on a Mac for Volume, Brightness, Keyboard-Illumination etc.., therefore "fn" enables the secondary assigned functions of those keys in Ubuntu.

Thank you for asking though GalmWing!
