  • Do you mean stuff like volume control from the keyboard etc? Which model you have? I have mid 2012 and those keys work out of the box on 12.10

  • @PratyushNalam That keys are also appreciated. Oh, I didn't say that Ubuntu is not on the Mac. Examples of interested shortcuts: Cmd-W, Cmd-Q, Cmd-V, Cmd-C etc.

  • If it is not on the Mac, where is it? Then how will you have a Cmd key?

Try this.

sudo apt-get install pommed

I installed this on 12.04 but found it was unnecessary on 12.10. Anyways, see if this works for you.
