So, I want to install Linux on my laptop. I started with Arch... but 4 hours later, I'll take anything... so now I'm trying Ubuntu.
It appears that the keyboard function button that corresponds to my wireless does not work, and perhaps is windows dependent?
Every time I try to interact with wlan0, I get the error "Operation not possible due to RF-kill". And as I've looked around online, it has been suggested in other forums that the only way to resolve this is to reinstall windows and dual boot, so the FN key will work.
I think this is ridiculous. There must be a way to persuade the RF-kill to be turned off again, shouldn't there?
I don't have a recover disk for this laptop and I don't want to go through the trouble of requested one from acer. I reformatted the whole disk while attempted to install arch... so if there was a restore partition, I'm sure it's gone now.
