[Bug 1187976] Re: Function Keys - Wireless key does not work on Dell Vostro 5460


Po-Hsu Lin as per your https://launchpadlibrarian.net/141770608/BootDmesg.txt :
[ 0.304483] [Firmware Bug]: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored

Hence, as per http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/vostro-5460 an update is available for your BIOS (A07). If you update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate , does it change anything? If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and just provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Thank you for your understanding.

  Function Keys - Wireless key does not work on Dell Vostro 5460

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  CID: 201211-12070 Dell Vostro 5460 (12.04.2 kernel version 3.5.0-32

  Wireless key does not work on this system.

  Although the wireless is not working on this system (driver needed, see #1187688)
  But by pressling the Wireless key, I can't turn bluetooth off.

  Tested with showkey -k, the wireless key is responsive.
