Not sure if this has been solved yet, but I'm answering because I came across this post while trying to troubleshoot.

I found the answer here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=234107

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

  • 0 = disable Fn key completely
  • 1 = enable Fn key (shortcut keys first)
  • 2 = enable Fn key (F# keys first - F1-F12)

I have it set to 2 so I have to press the Fn key to use the keyboard shortcuts under the F# Keys

Hope that helps!

Edit: Note this is for the apple keyboards, obviously :)
