I'm using dual boot of Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 8.1. When I run rfkill list all it shows as follows:

:~$ rfkill list all
:~$

Please Help.

update:

Laptop model: Fujisu Lifebook LH532. It has a WiFi and a Bluetooth device(ralink rt3290). Both of them work fine in windows. In Ubuntu, I made my WiFi working by web help and tried for Bluetooth but still no luck.

lspci is:

    Do you have a wireless (WiFI/Bluetooth) card? What is the output of lspci and iwconfig? Please edit the question to include the output. – muru Aug 13 '14 at 7:52
  • You are right. I'm on it. – Kawsar Ahmed Aug 13 '14 at 10:44

It isn't meant to show anything if there is nothing to show. This command doesn't give a message like no wireless devices, which would be an improvement.

From the man page:

list [type]
             List the current state of all available rfkill-using devices, or
              just all of the given type.

So if there is nothing to list, then it won't show anything.

My output of rfkill list is the same as yours - nothing.

  • Yes, i got your point and understand that this is not the main problem. Thats why I've updated my question. – Kawsar Ahmed Aug 13 '14 at 10:43
