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



Question:

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.


Solution:1

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
