Ubuntu: Create a shortcut key to toggle Airplane Mode On/Off


I want to create a shortcut key that toggles Airplane Mode On/Off, but do not know what command to use.

To create a shortcut I go to Settings> Keyboard> Shortcuts and then specify a command to be run whenever a given accelerator (shortcut key) is activated.

What command should be specified here to toggle Airplane Mode via a shortcut key?

Note that a while ago I asked a similar question, but the answer that I got back then can not be applied here, since a shortcut key command can not change between "on" and "off", but should truly toggle the Airplane Mode not just activate or deactivate it.


You can use the following simple bash script:

#!/bin/bash    wifi="$(nmcli nm wifi | awk 'FNR == 2 {print $1}')"    if [ "$wifi" = "enabled" ]; then      nmcli nm wifi off  else      nmcli nm wifi on  fi  

Don't forget to make it executable:

chmod +x /path/to/script  

Then add your custom shortcut to this script (it's up to you what shortcut want to choose - it should be something simple for you, like Alt+F5):

add custom shortcut
