Hello,
after upgrading the gemian-leds package, I have a LED on the back showing what connection ype I am using. Even though I like this idea, in some circumstances the LED may be disturbing (eg. dark lecture hall). Is there any easy way how to manage this LED ? Or maybe not only disabling this new feature (ideally just sometimes, on demand) but controlling the other LEDs as well for notifications (if gemini would not sleep fully ) ?

thanks
George

First turn off wifi and bluetooth and cellular in connman
Then sudo systemctl stop gemian-leds
Then turn on wifi , bluetooth and cellular in connman. ( the led now is turned off )

To turn on simply sudo systemctl start gemian-leds. ( the leds are active now )

Thanks for tip, works nice, maybe a script could automate this (I still did not get used to systemd, you know, the old school init.d person, so I do not know the commad for entering the airplane mode). But I would prefer some /etc/leds.conf with
CAPS=on
Connection=off

options. I did not find any feature request page for gemian and I presume we do not have any mailing list. Aside of that I do not like the idea of TP3 moving from X11 and I do not know where to complain ...

I am not with my gemini now, but to enter airplane mode you can press Fn and a key that have a symbol of the airplane in keyboard ( If I remember "F" key ).

Sorry for being too brief - I know how to enter the airplane mode by keyboard, the point was, that it would be nice to have a script for autamating the task "go to airplane mode, wait for a while, shutdown gemini.led, go back from the airplane mode". But reading my text again I realize that rfkill (if works) may be more elegant and UNIX way to go ;-)

I am traveling without my gemini. I think someone here may help and make a test.
Maybe in the future when I arrive I can make a test.
