    You can also try Acer-Hotkeys for 32bit (not working on 64bit systems! Check with "uname -a"):

    http://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/ac.../#post-2670605

    Code:
    wget https://launchpad.net/~cogito-16/+archive/ppa/+files/acerhk-source_0.5.35-13a_all.deb
    sudo dpkg -i acer*.deb
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential module-assistant debhelper
    cd /usr/src
    sudo tar -xjf acerhk.tar.bz2 
    sudo mv /usr/src/modules/ /usr/src/acerhk-0.5.35/
    gksudo gedit /usr/src/acerhk-0.5.35/dkms.conf
    Insert the following:
    Code:
    PACKAGE_NAME=acerhk
    PACKAGE_VERSION=0.5.35
    
    DEST_MODULE_LOCATION=/extra
    BUILT_MODULE_NAME=acerhk
    BUILT_MODULE_LOCATION=acerhk/
    
    MAKE="'make' -C acerhk/ all"
    CLEAN="'make' -C acerhk/ clean"
    AUTOINSTALL="yes"
    save and close.

    Test:
    Code:
    sudo dkms add -m acerhk -v 0.5.35
    If it works without error, compile and install:
    Code:
    sudo dkms build -m acerhk -v 0.5.35 
    sudo dkms install -m acerhk -v 0.5.35
    Load the module:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v acerhk
    sudo rfkill unblock all

    I solved this problem using this procedure (I have a Toshiba p755 with a AR9285)

    "With the battery and AC adapter removed, close the Power switch for half-a-minute.
    Re-attach those, press the Power button to turn the computer on, and then immediately press the F2 key while the Toshiba logo is displayed. Press F9 to restore the BIOS default settings, press F10, and then select Yes (Exit Saving Changes). The computer will restart.
    "

    Fixed the same issue with the X305 X300.

    rfkill showed it as hard blocked. after doing the BIOS things, it works perfectly
