I have installed Ubuntu (10.10) on a Macbook pro (6,2).

Does anyone know how to get the following buttons functionality: - Delete (fn+backspace doesn't work) - Home - End

The keyboard does not have a delete button - just backspace. Delete is the most missed one :(

Update: I don't know what I did but it works now. I king of did almost all that is written here. One of them probably helped.

Did you set the keyboard variant to a Mac keyboard? It's in System > Preferences > Keyboard > Layouts, you can add new layouts there. Select your layout and the Mac variant.
