NAME

       rfkill - tool for enabling and disabling wireless devices

SYNOPSIS

       rfkill [options] [command] [id|type ...]

DESCRIPTION

       rfkill lists, enabling and disabling wireless devices.

       The  command  "list" output format is deprecated and maintained for backward compatibility
       only. The new output format is the default when no command is specified or when the option
       --output is used.

       The  default  output  is  subject to change.  So whenever possible, you should avoid using
       default outputs in your scripts.  Always explicitly define expected columns by  using  the
       --output  option  together  with  a  columns list in environments where a stable output is
       required.

OPTIONS

       -J, --json
              Use JSON output format.

       -n, --noheadings
              Do not print a header line.

       -o, --output
              Specify which output columns to print.  Use --help  to  get  a  list  of  available
              columns.

       --output-all
              Output all available columns.

       -r, --raw
              Use the raw output format.

       --help Display help text and exit.

       --version
              Display version information and exit.

COMMANDS

       help   Display help text and exit.

       event  Listen for rfkill events and display them on stdout.

       list [id|type ...]
              List  the  current  state  of  all available devices.  The command output format is
              deprecated, see the section DESCRIPTION.  It is a good  idea  to  check  with  list
              command  id  or type scope is appropriate before setting block or unblock.  Special
              all type string will match everything.  Use of multiple id  or  type  arguments  is
              supported.

       block id|type [...]
              Disable the corresponding device.

       unblock id|type [...]
              Enable  the corresponding device.  If the device is hard-blocked, for example via a
              hardware switch, it will remain unavailable though it is now soft-unblocked.

EXAMPLES

       rfkill --output ID,TYPE
       rfkill block all
       rfkill unblock wlan
       rfkill block bluetooth uwb wimax wwan gps fm nfc
