  • But everytime i put $rfkill list in the terminal it simply says that the command is not found – Opaldes Mar 13 '16 at 19:09
  • i looked in the man pages so its not a typo – Opaldes Mar 13 '16 at 19:10

You have got to run it as root.

It does not run, nor it is found as a regular user. It resides in /usr/sbin, that is only searched and used by root. Normally the /usr/sbin/ and /sbin directory house binaries that need to be run with special privileges.

If you defined a sudo user, you can run it as

sudo rfkill
