http://ubuntuforums.org – I have a small issue with my Ubuntu 9.10 Beta. Actually all function keys ('FN' +) work quite well out of the box. No problem with sound volume, background light etc. Even the function key to toggle the Wifi off works out of the box. I press it once and the wireless is deactivated. But I can not reactivate it by pressing the function key once more. In order to get Wifi to work again I have to restart the computer. Does anybody know the reason for this? Is there a script I can use to get Wifi working again without restarting Ubuntu? With the original Xandros that was not an issue but in Ubuntu it never worked for me. With Ubuntu 9.04 I was even not able to switch Wifi off. Now I can switch it off but have trouble restarting it again. (Hardware)
