Hi, ALL,
On my laptop when I press Fn + F2, it shoud switch the WiFi ON/OFF.
Is there a software/driver/daemon that can recognize this key combination and perform such operation?

Thank you.

You need rfkill enabled in the kernel at a bare minimum. Sometimes that's enough and it will just work. If the kernel doesn't recognise it as a rfkill button then it might show up as an ACPI button event, you could try using acpid and net-wireless/rfkill.

Hi,
The "rfkill" itself is on.
But "rfkill_gpio", "rfkill_regulator" and "xo1_rfkill" are not.

Should they?

And I will try to install net-wireless/rfkill mext.

Thank you.

P.S.: It looks like I already have it, just probably a bit outdated:

Code:

IgorDellGentoo /usr/src/linux # emerge -pv rfkill
 * Last emerge --sync was 41d 5h 26m 59s ago.

 * IMPORTANT: 2 config files in '/etc/portage' need updating.
 * See the CONFIGURATION FILES and CONFIGURATION FILES UPDATE TOOLS
 * sections of the emerge man page to learn how to update config files.

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild     U  ] net-wireless/rfkill-0.5-r2::gentoo [0.5::gentoo] 0 KiB

Total: 1 package (1 upgrade), Size of downloads: 0 KiB
