I am using a Dell Mini 9 with Ubuntu 10.10 OS and am used to hitting F11 for full screen. How can I get my keyboard to do this?

There is an F11 on the keyboard. If you have updated your BIOS to A02 or newer then you can use Function+Z for F11.

A posting on Dell Support references A02, but the current version is A05 so it's a moot point.

@A-Rock I see what you mean, but it doesn't seem to work on my machine –  David Feb 25 '11 at 20:59

This user guide also says you can use Ctrl+Alt+F (page 9)

You could use the ~/.Xmodmap file to use another key as F11, including some modifier combinations.

The documentation of ~/.Xmodmap can be a bit cryptic, but I'd suggest the Gentoo wiki as a starting point.
