Description:

This applet controls killswitches and enables you to turn off or on radio devices. I designed that application to use the wireless toggle function key on my Lenovo laptop which has a single toggle function key for 3 devices (bluetooth, wifi and ultrawideband).

HELP:
-------
I am currently not succeeding in building RPM packages for Fedora and Mandriva. I don't use those distributions and it will take me quite a while to figure out how to fix my issue. If anyone could help me on the make install and the file locations for the plasmoid, I would be delighted to update my packages.

Very handy app!

The package provided in openSUSE 11.4 repo doesn't seem to demand hal as a dependency, but doesn't work properly if hal is removed from system.

Hi denisq,

For HAL will be removed, we developed a urfkill daemon to provide DBus method to userland applications:

http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/urfkill#preview

Do you mind we send patches to you for Killswitch-Manager can also support urfkill daemon?

I will base on your source code tarball 0.2 version, or you can share your git repo to us if you are ok.


Thank's a lot!
Joey Lee

Hi,

I've made an Arch Linux package for your program.

You can find it at http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=37575

.desktop file and the icon are probably useful for general distribution, too.

Thank you very much for both your package and the icon!

Best regards.

You are welcome. Actually, the icon is not mine (I've taken it from OpenClipart.org), but it is in public domain.

Hi!

You might whant to examine the command "xmodmap". Whith this you can bind a special key to a "normal key".

Check the manpage:

Thanks! However I knew about xmodmap but my function key is not recognized by xev and seems to be beyond the scope of X11. That's where Hal comes to manage those key events.
