flight mode
« on: July 31, 2018, 07:38:29 am »
Hi all,
I'm really liking sparky linux. I want to take my netbook with on holiday & use it on the plane but cant find flight mode, is there one included or something I can download to do this? Is flight mode just the same as turning off wireless connectivity if so how do I go about this?

It depends of a desktop.
I think, there is such option in the GNOME or KDE, mayby in MATE too, but didn't see in other DE.

Shut down wireless and bluetooth.  Brute force would be on network and bluetooth.    You could set up a bash script and use systemctl  or use systemctl on the command line.

nmcli if you use NetworkManager on your machine. 

LXQT  cmst (gui)  or connmanctl (cli)  would work.   

Mate(17) has a widget for network.  I have to disable network and then enable via right clicking several times a shift at work - concrete walls, other apartments.

peace out.
