Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Recently, my wireless card shut off on my laptop (System76 Bonp3 running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). Awhile back, my keyboard had a meeting with a cup of coffee, and my F11 key no longer works. The key binding for turning my card back on happens to be Fn + F11, so I cannot turn my wifi on.

The only solution I can think of is to somehow change this to be bound to another key. I'm looking for the script that handles this particular hardware switch so I can bind it elsewhere.

I was unable to find this script, so I made my own: askubuntu.com/questions/240515 –  Gerhard Burger Jan 13 '13 at 11:51
