As far as I know there is no way for any OS to detect the Fn
keypress.  This is because the key is linked to the BIOS.  This can be
shown by running 'showkey'.  by pressing various keys your notice keycodes
being displayed.  However by pressing the Fn button nothing happens.

Well this is all true for my laptop and one or two others I've played
