  1. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    The following worked for me:

    In Skype: Options --> "Sound Devices" --> uncheck "Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels."

    It's not a perfect solution, of course, since ideally you'd...

    Gotcha. Are you sure it's a Ubuntu thing? (In other words, do they behave any better under Windoze?)

    I have to say, I have always found the internal speakers on the Portege to be unbelievably bad....

    Through speakers or line out?

    --> anydroid: Do your brightness controls work after suspend, without toshset? (Or did you mean that this is just not part of "everything you need", which would be totally understandable...?)
  5. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    Why you would expect any of this to work without a functioning toshset command is beyond me.



    I'm fairly sure this was also mentioned earlier in this thread, but what the heck: resuming from...

    Make sure that all the indentation in gpm-monitor matches: the first two lines after the 'while' statement should be indented by one tab, and the one after that...

    More brightness goodness...:

    There's one thing that the "cleaner" brightness fix -- the one based on toshset and discussed in post #10 of this thread -- never managed to take care of: after...
  8. [SOLVED] 'error: unknown filesystem. grub rescue>' after messed up hibernation

    Hello all,

    I just had what seemed like a catastrophe with my Ubuntu installation, but was in fact able to recover from it completely (not to mention, within an hour or so), and now everything is...
  9. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    Take a look at the code that connect404 has in the original post. Worked for me! (You have to make it run on every login, via Startup Applications or something.)



    I've occasionally encountered...
  10. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    I'm not 100% sure of this, but I don't think those options used to have an effect (back in 2.6.32), either. The reason I needed toshset, and why I went through the process of building it on 2.6.35,...
  11. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    You should check to see if you have another toshiba_acpi.ko somewhere, superseding the toshiba_acpi.ko you compiled. On my system, I had a...

    To ksanger and CIement:

    It just so happened that today, Intel released new microcode images for both their 6250AGN and 6005AGN adapters on Linux.

    I must say that I don't know what the...
  13. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    Hi CIement,

    I think if you stick to the 2.6.32 kernel (i.e., Ubuntu 10.04, or 10.10-and-then-downgrading-the-kernel), most of the problems identified in this thread would go away, or at least the...
  14. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    I think I saw in one of your previous posts, ksanger, that you're on an R705-P35, right? I'm on an R705-P25 (i.e., an older model), which uses an Intel 6200, which I guess is better supported :-/
    ...
  15. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    That's my point, though -- I was running Ubuntu 10.10 with 2.6.35 on my R705 for quite a while and never encountered this particular issue. Perhaps, then, I should have written "I suspect they...
  16. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    ksanger,

    I have an R705 as well, and so long as you install 10.04.1 (or alternatively, install 10.10 and downgrade to the 2.6.32 kernel), the OS works *great* on this machine. As far as the...
  17. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    The "fix" using toshset amounts to calling 'toshset -bl on' after every time you alter brightness (i.e., right after the brightness function-keys are pressed). For reasons that are not 100% clear to...
  18. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    Yes, to the best of my understanding, toshutils was designed to work with the old power-management interface, APM -- whereas toshset can talk to the newer interface, ACPI.
  19. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    I can confirm that kernel 2.6.35 (the one distributed under Maverick) breaks toshset. Turns out a bug has already been submitted about this;

    [all variants] Re: Super LFM (Intel Santa Rosa and Above)

    You can get this fix, at least for the R705, without going to upstream kernels, by using the official alsa backports package. See this post in the "official R700/R705" thread for details:

    Regarding the headphones/mic jacks issue:

    JacquiOh: I've found a better, cleaner, and -- most importantly -- more reliable solution to the brightness-control-after-resume problem.

    Here it is:

  23. [all variants] Re: Toshiba Portege R700 / R705 Linux Hardware Compatibility Thread

    I've got an R705, and I think I've found a solution to the "Brightness is locked after resume" problem. It's a little kludgy, but it works.

    I've added a script to /etc/pm/sleep.d directory called...
