Gnome hot-key Fn+F10 doesn't work

Hi to everyone!
I have a dual-boot laptop win10+arch with Gnome on a board. Win10 haven't got the issues such as this but I can't turn off/on airplane mode by means hot key Fn+F10.
I tried to use those settings
/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/rfkill-static  and
/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/rfkill
but it was unsuccessfully. Along with this I tried those commands to solve the problem, first one is
xev -event keyboard
but there was no output when I push the combination, next one is
showkey -k
and output was --couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console-- unfortunately.
Could you help me overcome this problem!!?!?!
Please any ideas!!!

Re: Gnome hot-key Fn+F10 doesn't work

Welcome to the forums.  Are you running Gnome under Wayland or under Xorg.  I expect xev will not work under Wayland.
showkey cannot be run inside of an Xorg or Wayland session.  You must change to a console using CTRL-ALT-F2 (or F3, or F4....), log in, and run showkey from there.

What is the output of rfkill  ?
Are you not succeeding at entering airplane mode or exiting airplane mode?  In other words, is the WiFi working now and you cannot change its state?

Re: Gnome hot-key Fn+F10 doesn't work

Thanks for your replies!!! I finally manage to solve the issue by means installing Xbindkeys and configuring like this.
#Radio on
"nmcli radio wifi on | bluetoothctl power on"
F10
#Radio off
"nmcli radio wifi off | bluetoothctl power off"
Alt+Mod2 + Alt_R + F10
Than I added this app into the autostart and it's working now as it should be...
