    Re: Toshiba L655 wireless, audio, and battery issues

    Got same problem here. I have Toshiba L650 X5310 and have issues in detecting battery. The two issues I noticed after installing 10.10 were the in-built mic not working and battery not being detected and the problem with mic I got fixed by appending the line "snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad", thanks for mentioning that fix. I have tried different versions/distros of Linux and all posses the same issue.

    Re: Toshiba L655 wireless, audio, and battery issues

    I have a satellite L655 - 113

    I can't get my headphones work properly.

    appending
    options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad
    made no difference.

    i also found somewhere else a tip to add
    options snd-hda-intel model=ideapad
    which had no effect either.

    any advise?

    @DarKMaTTeR.tm:
    You can try installing LinuxAlsaDriverModules
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/Instal...aDriverModules

    or you could try other models for options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HdaIntelSoundHowto

    If neither of the suggestions in those links works, you may want to start a new thread for your problem.

    Re: Toshiba L655 wireless, audio, and battery issues

    Has anyone figured out a fix for the battery recognition problem? I just got this laptop and I have fixed the audio/wireless, but battery still remains a problem with being detected in Ubuntu.

    Solution:
    -Add the following PPA and install deb package with DKMS module.

    Alternative solution: (did not attempt)
    -Download Realtek driver from Realtek's website. Downloaded driver is for RTL8192CE.
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...true#RTL8188CE
    -Compile downloaded Realtek driver for current linux kernel.
    -The problem with this solution is that the realtek driver must be manually recompiled each time a new kernel is installed.

    Reference:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1604101
    Just a note on this. The driver does not seem to connect to WEP 40/128-bit Key with Open Authentication connections well. If you are having problems with the internet not working after a few minutes you may need to change it to a WEP 40/128-bit Key with Shared Authentication.

    Re: Toshiba L655 wireless, audio, and battery issues

    I'm getting a similar problem with a Toshiba L640 PSK0LA-05X00T on Natty - no battery is visible.

    I had working wireless until I tried a BIOS update to fix the battery problem. Now I have no wireless and no battery. (After the update a bluetooth icon popped up in my menubar, so perhaps the updated did do something positive?)

    After the BIOS update I also tried adding acpi_osi="Linux" to grub to see if that would fix the battery. But it didn't seem to do anything at all.

    I now have to fix up my wireless and any other issues that may have occurred. I haven't tried anything yet - not even the proprietary drivers that Ubuntu suggests or other suggestions in this thread. This is just a preliminary report to let others know about my BIOS experience!

    More info: I updated my BIOS from 1.70 to 2.30. Here's the link I used to download the update:

    From your previous posts, you are using an older kernel in debian squeeze than Ubuntu Maverick uses.
    You run uname -r and get kernel version 2.6.32, while in Maverick we get version 2.6.35.

    This is important, because the drivers from realtek say in the readme for these drivers that kernels older than 2.6.35 are not supported, and may not even work.

    Also note that older kernels do support the battery. I tried installing Ubuntu Lucid (also kernel version 2.6.32) first, and the battery meter works, but not any of the wireless or ethernet.

    So something is either broken or no longer supported upstream.

    Re: Toshiba L655 wireless, audio, and battery issues

    I have a Toshiba L650 laptop that I just got, Core i3, 4gb ram, etc. etc.

    It arrived the same day Ubuntu 11.04 was released, so I right away I downloaded the ISO and reformatted over the Windows 7 64-bit Home Edition that was pre-installed.

    After getting Ubuntu 11.04 installed I did run into the built-in microphone issue not working. It was resolved rather easily by following the configuration change at the start of this post. I didn't have any issues with the wireless though.

    However, I am still having issues with the battery not being detected and I have searched high and low over these forums and other forums using Google and have found nothing that has resolved the issue.

    There has been talk about rebuilding the kernel, about updating the BIOS of the machine, etc. but no one has been able to 100% determine the actual fix.

    uname -r
    2.6.38-8-generic

    cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state
    present: no

    lshw -C power
    *-battery
    description: Lithium Ion Battery
    product: CRB Battery 0
    vendor: -Virtual Battery 0-
    physical id: 2
    version: 10/12/2007
    serial: Battery 0
    slot: Fake

    Is it because acpi is looking at BAT1 while lshw is showing the battery in slot "Fake" with serial "Battery 0"?

    If there's any other information that I can provide to possible help, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Edit: I'm not exactly sure what I've done different now than previously except for reboot the laptop.

    However now I get the following, but still no battery monitor in the status menu in the upper-right.

    cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state
    present: yes
    capacity state: ok
    charging state: charged

    Which configuration location would I want to try and set the CONFIG_ACPI_PROCFS_POWER option that it is recommending?

    Ughhhhh, wish I could fully resolve this issue. =\

    OMG THANK YOU!!!!!!!

    I can now use UBUNTU ON MY LAPTOP

    Now I feel smarter 'cuz I compiled a kernel!

    THANK YOU!

    UPDATE 07/15/10: I had to run some extra commands on the kernel source to get the newest version of Virtualbox (it was 4.0.10) to get the kernel module for vbox to install:
    Code:
    make oldconfig
    and there was one more which I can't seem to remember :/
