Apple aluminium function key behavior configuration on Ubuntu Linux

By default, function keys (i.e., F1 to F19) of Apple aluminum keyboard are multimedia special keys, e.g., setting screen brightness or speaker volume. If you want to press a real function key, you need to press a function and the fn key above delete key.

But, as a programmer who uses IDEs a lot, I don't wanna press fn - i don't wanna play piano on my computer keyboard.

So, I googled around and found out the very easy solution at Ubuntu Wiki. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AppleKeyboard

I have tried it out and it worked as expected.
