I've installed elementary OS 0.4 Loki (64-bit) on my desktop PC and I'm using an Apple Magic Keyboard via USB and/or Bluetooth.
Everything works fine but I can't use the
fn key to get to input things like forward delete and so on...
The keyboard works with no problems via Bluetooth or USB on my MacBook air.
I've been searching on google and this stackexchange page but I can only find people complaining about pairing via Bluetooth and all the links point to this doc page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AppleKeyboard None of the solutions there seem to work.
As mike-wild suggested, I tried using
No matter if I press Backspace or
Backspace the output is the same:
KeyRelease event, serial 37, synthetic NO, window 0x2c00001, root 0xf4, subw 0x0, time 138447, (270,71), root:(1194,356), state 0x0, keycode 22 (keysym 0xff08, BackSpace), same_screen YES, XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (08) " XFilterEvent returns: False –
I'm now wondering, do I need any specific driver? How come Macbooks + elementary have the
fn key working but mine doesn't?
