Just installed 11.10 on my MacBook Pro.
Question is (and searching has yeilded nothing helpful) how to switch to

At the risk of insulting your intelligence, do you need to hit the Fn
key to use F1-F12?
Do MacBooks even have that key?
Nah, no worries, no insult there. That's why I asked.
But yes, I found out shortly before that I indeed need to use the [fn]
key to get the [Fx] keys to ack as I expect. Otherwise, they act as the
secondary labels say (volume control, etc.)
In MacOSX, you have to go to a System Pref to change the default
behaviour to get them to act as F keys...
Looks like I need to fiddle with pommed for Ubuntu...
Indeedy, that's the fix...
Install the pommed package, edit /etc/pommed.conf to change fnmode from
1 to 2, and sudo pommed restart.
