I've posted this to the appropriate Ubuntu forums, but I figured that I'd
post here as well.
I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro 200-1EE that I'm running Ubuntu 11,10 on.
The problem is that the
wireless LAN doesn't work. It seems as though the device is hard blocked
as per information
from rfkill list all.
Also, unfortunately, the hardware switch seems to be the Fn-F8 key
combination, which doesn't work
on Ubuntu 11.10. I know that there is a bug filed with Ubuntu on this
issue. It seems to be something to do
with the Toshiba ACPI (Bug 810015).
Has anyone else experienced this? Is there some sort of workaround? The
only thing that I can think of to do at the moment
is install Win XP or Windows 7 on one of the disk drives, boot into that
and enable the wireless, but that would really, really suck.
