[Bug 972604] Re: Wireless led button doesn't switch colors


cristian, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  Wireless led button doesn't switch colors

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm using Lubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot. My wifi chip is supported from
  ath5k drivers. The led button blinks between red and blue light and
  its pressure does anything.

  I tried to type:

  echo none > "/sys/class/leds/ath5k-phy0::tx/trigger"
  echo phy0radio > "/sys/class/leds/ath5k-phy0::rx/trigger"

  and in this way I can control the color of the LED. But the problem is
  that the colors are reversed: it should be red for wifi off and blue
  for wifi on, but it is rather the opposite!

  I was told that the driver has got a bug.
