Keyboard MB110 on Linux

So I got myself a new keyboard. It's an Apple MB110 (D/B variant). Works flawlessly in xorg after configuring it.

# Only if you're german
setxkbmap de

# Absolutely necessary
setxkbmap -option apple:badmap

# Yes, swap escape and caps lock
setxkbmap -option caps:swapescape

# Swapping the command and option keys was a little tricky:

# Put this into ~/.xsession-command and use it with xmodmap ~/.xsession-command
clear Mod1
clear Mod4

keycode 64 = Super_L
keycode 133 = Alt_L
keycode 134 = ISO_Level3_Shift
keycode 108 = Super_R

add Mod1 = Alt_L Alt_R

# To fix the function keys (you need to use fn by default to access them)
# echo 2 | sudo tee /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode (temporary)
# echo options hid_apple fnmode=2 | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf (permanent, reboot)
