What is the terminal command to turn Airplane Mode on/off in Ubuntu?
Is it simply
sudo rfkill block all and
sudo rfkill unblock all? I know that this will disable all wireless modules in the computer, but will this be noticed by the system, so that Airplane Mode is toggled off/on in network settings?
Running the following command in terminal:
will open a window for network management which should be similar with:
You can observe that at this moment the "Airplane Mode" is off and the wireless is on.
Now, without to close this window, run the following command in terminal:
The above window will be changed automatically to:
As you can see, now "Airplane Mode" is on and the wireless is off.
Running, again in terminal, the following command:
will turn "Airplane Mode" off and wireless on again.
So, you don't need
rfkill(which need also root privileges) to toggle "Airplane Mode" via terminal.
man nmcli) it's enough and can be executed by any usual user... You don't need root privileges to climb in an airplane :)).
