I want to swap the effect of fn-key for some of the F1-F12 keys. How can I achieve this on osx (10.6) on a macbook? Ideally I should be able to toggle the effect for individual keys, but a solution toggling all will also do.

Use FunctionFlip.

Toggle all in System Preferences:

Use this script to toggle using keyboard shortcut or otherwise semi-automated.
