I have problem with hardware buttons. I have MSI vr630x, but my panel with buttons for WiFi, camera and bluetooth are missing (it has been removed at all).

Is there a way to turn devices on? I have these devices working, I just don't have buttons to turn them on.

You can enable back your default indicator manually on your panel.

Open terminal Ctrl + Alt + T and run this command:

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"

For Wifi you can use NetworkManager or Wicd or KnetworkManager or other tool.

For Bluetooth you can use blueman:

Blueman is a GTK+ Bluetooth Manager. Blueman is designed to be simple and intuitive for everyday bluetooth tasks such as:

  • Connecting to 3G/EDGE/GPRS via DUN profile.
  • Connecting to/Creating bluetooth networks
  • Connecting to input devices
  • Connecting to audio devices
  • Sending/Receiving/Browsing files via OBEX
  • Pairing


sudo apt-get install blueman

For camera you can use Cheese.

Great site on setting up your camera here.

Just search for a few tools and try them out, to see what you like the most.
