Debian Configuration :: How To Switch On Bluetooth ON TOSHIBA Laptop
May 4, 2010
Just resently I managed to activate internal bluetooth adapter. I'm not expert in command line and everything I could was done in GNOME. Same like most other systems an icon appears in panel bar whenever I used to type <modprobe omnibook ectype=14>. It took me some time to set everything with the kind help from URL... So the thing is that after fingering with some newly installed packages concerning b-tooth utilities that icon is gone and b-tooth is not active.
I have recently installed the intel-wireless-tools and now my laptop detects my wireless router and connects to it but when I go into a browser I can access the internet. If I connect to the wired network no problems(same router) no go on Wireless.
CPU fan apparently is not working with Debian (or Kernel, I don't know who's responsible for ACPI devices management. ).After setting up lm-sensors to show core temperatures, and running a simple "while(true);" C program, I noticed the fan doesn't turn on until the temperature reaches 80 degrees Celsius, and when it does, it runs at what appears to be full speed (VERY noisy). Also, it stays turned on at that speed even after temperature gets below 35 degrees Celsius. The only way to turn it off is to put the computer to sleep and wake it up again, but if I do the same procedure, it happens again.
I think it is related to some compatibility problem with ACPI devices because when I turn on the computer, I can't get the Fn keys to work, but after I suspend and wake it up, I can control the brightness using the Fn key and use the Play, Pause, etc. buttons. I read this has something to do with ACPI issues, the same as the fan control issues, because "try to suspend and wake up the computer" is something people usually tell to others with this problem (I assume just to confirm the diagnostic).Everything works fine on the pre-installed Windows Vista that came with the computer. It's definitely a compatibility problem.
I've read a lot in forums, even here, but I couldn't get any solution for this. I installed toshset but asks me to enable a Kernel module which I have no idea of how to load. I have no idea of how to load a Kernel module in fact.Also, I didn't want to believe, but I read there's no solution for this (at least, not one which doesn't involve a lot of knowledge on the matter).I'd like to stay with Debian, so I'm doing my last try here before installing other Linux Distro. I hope this problem is about Debian and not all Linux distros.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355, Intel Pentium Dual Core T3200. I bought it in the end of 2008, so it's kind of old.
Why isn't my laptop's wired ethernet not showing? I have a Toshiba Satellite PSAG8U-04001W.
The installation of Debian wasn't originally on this system: it was on an older laptop whose motherboard fried, so I rescued the hard drive as well as the Debian installation. However, I doubt this should have anything to do with lspci not even detecting the wired eth controller.
I can consider my Debian Squeeze installation completed at the moment. In fact, it looks like everything is working with not so much effort:
- video graphics card - keyboard - mouse (both external USB and built-in touchpad) - ethernet wired lan - wireless lan (WPA!) - sound (headphones and loudspeakers!) - web-cam
What else? I think it's everything! Now I run a 'dmesg' command (see below since it looks like I cannot attach files) and I get some errors/problems/warnings (see below some rows which has been extracted from the whole 'dmesg' output) that I'm not able to "weight": are they true problems? Is it something I have to worry about? Can anybody suggest solutions to correct/solve the problems?
I have HP Compaq 6530b laptop running Debian Wheezy AMD64. I have a docking station with a monitor supporting 1680x1050 resolution and the laptop monitor with 1440x900. The video is integrated Intel mobile series 4.Both monitors are identified and working OK. When I use the laptop monitor standalone it runs at the native resolution. When connected to the docking station I can choose dual monitors with both using their native resolutions and the desktop spread on both of them (with the laptop monitor being primary and containing the taskbar and icons). If I choose to mirror the display it sets itself to a lower resolution of 1280x1024 that is supported by both monitors.
The problem is that I want to use one monitor at a time. If I close the lid of the laptop it turns off both monitors instead of using the docking station. When the lid is closed I want the bigger docking station monitor to be primary and working at native resolution and if I open the laptop or remove the laptop from the docking station to use the laptop monitor at it's native resolution.I had Debian Lenny I386 before and it was operating as expected but I made a clean install of Wheezy amd64 and I don't know how to configure it.I don't have xorg.conf file so I don't know where it takes the settings from.
I've been having a problem with Bluetooth on Debian 8 Jessie i just can't connect to any bluetooth device, i have only tested my smartphone and my bluetooth headphones, i am using blueman manager.After attempting to connect to my bluetooth headphones/smartphone it just disconnects and says "Connection Failed: No such file or directory",i don't know if i have to create a config file or something, the error message doesn't say anything but the error previously mentioned.
I installed Blueman & paired my headset successfully but I get this error message when I connect my headset, "Failed to initialize pulseaudio bluetooth module. Bluetooth audio over pulseaudio will not work". When I go to Pulse Audio Volume Control, it's not showing in my hardware list.
I've followed the guide at URL.... but my computer is unable to find any Bluetooth devices. Whether I'm using the command line or gnome-bluetooth, I don't get any results. If I plug in a cheap USB adapter, I'm able to connect and use the devices.My computer is a HP ProBook 4330s running Debian Jessie. And as far as I can tell the Bluetooth adapter is a Ralink rt3592 combination Wi-Fi and Bluetooth PCI card. The Wi-Fi works fine, but when i try to connect to a Bluetooth device, I get no search results.
Until a while ago, I had to problems sshing into my laptop, whose static IP is 192.168.1.64. I scp'ed a few files from it to my desktop, whose static IP is 192.168.1.22. Then, suddenly, I started getting a "destination host unreachable" error. I also get the same error when I try to ping the laptop. I verified that the ssh daemon was running on the laptop, and even rebooted, but I am still getting the error.
I didn't install any upgrades or edit any configuration files on the laptop between the time that ssh was working and when it stopped working.
Otherwise, networking works on the laptop. In fact, I am writing this post from it. It is as if my laptop suddenly decided to block incoming traffic.
I have installed Squeeze on my laptop, an Acer 5315.The fans never turn on, and the laptop eventually overheats and shuts off.This is not a hardware problem, because Lenny, on another partition, works fine.I have poked around, and discovered that the temperature sensor, as reported by "acpi -V", and in /sys/devices/virtual/thermal, does not get updated. It seems to get read at boot, but the reading never changes, no matter how hot the machine gets.
Specifically, if the machine is cool, acpi reports 40 degrees C, and goes on reporting the same number until the machine overheats and shuts down.On the other hand, if the machine is hot (because it's been running without the fan), and I reboot, then the reading at boot is usually either 75 or 85, and the fan turns on during boot, and stays on, at high speed, until the next reboot, and the reading never changes during the whole time
I have been using debian from the past 3 years on a dell inspiron 1520 (2007 model). Yesterday i bought a dell inspiron 5548 (Early 2015). I have and ssd drive in old laptop that i want to move to the new laptop. To my knowledge i think i can replace the 1TB hard drive on new laptop with ssd, remove or reinstall or update drivers so the ssd will just run fine on new laptop without having to reinstall all the stuff and customization. Should i recompile the kernel in linux for new hardware? AFA windows 7(Dual booting Debian 8 and Windows 7), i think removing and reinstalling drivers will work fine.

My Thinkpad T61 just got a Corsair X256 SSD in the ultrabay (where the CD usually is). This works well except for hibernating. Earlier I had a traditional HDD drive there which also hibernates just fine.After a failed hibernate the machine hangs with this message on screen:
I have installed squeeze on a HP notebook. I have one small problem though.It does not resume from suspend. If I shutdown -> suspend, or close the the lid, or shut downs (suspends) as expected, but whenower it backup up, the screen just stays black.Hibernate is working fine.

The sound on my system is really low. I am using a Toshiba Tecra M3 laptop with Intel sound.
Here is my uname info: Code: 126.96.36.199-67.fc12.i686 #1 SMP Sat Feb 27 10:00:02 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I tested both Rhythmbox and Gnome Mplayer. Both are low when using headphones and very low when using the laptop speakers. I checked the alsa configuration via alsamixer -c0 and everything looks good. I have attached my alsa-info.txt file.
I feel I am really really close at getting this connected.
The native ath9k driver did not work. I blacklisted this driver and then proceeded to load a windows driver that came with the card through ndiswrapper.
The system sees my wireless router but I could not get connected to the router. I get the circle of death of it trying to connect though.
I then replaced the Network Manager with Wicd.
I try and connect, after setting the preshared key, and it stops at the very end saying it could not obtain an IP address.
I then try to set a static IP, and at the very end it comes back with, "could not contact wireless access point".
I feel I am so close to getting this connected I just don't know if it is a setting on my router I need to change or to look for a different driver. Driver should be fine but I'm no expert.
I have two other computers wireless'ly connected to this router currently and one of them is connected via a dual boot, Ubuntu and Win7, so at the very least these two computers don't have any issues connecting to the router.
Or I am just going to live with WinXP installed on it instead. BTW: I had no problems getting a wireless connection from this laptop when I had WinXP installed, but I have since wiped it off with a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10. Goes to show how much I want to rid myself of Windows on the laptop.
I even installed 8.04 to see if I could make a connection with that version but to no avail I could not. I have since reloaded 9.10.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A660-056 which works beautifully except that the built in mic and the headphone jack don't work. For the microphone, no input device is listed in the Sound Preferences control panel. When I plug in headphones, the built-in speakers go quiet but nothing goes through the headphones.
Here's the info Code: uname -a Linux satelliteoflove 2.6.32-24-generic #43-Ubuntu SMP Thu Sep 16 14:17:33 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
I'm using a Hama Voiis bluetooth audio device connected to my stereo. Both my girlfriend (running 9.10) and me (10.4) can pair with, connect to and stream audio from whatever application we use to the device. However to do so requires a couple of manual steps which I'd like to optimise.
First it's necessary to manually connect to device, since we both want to stream to this, connecting manually seems the best since I suppose only one can connect at any one time. Once connected it's necessary to select "Output" in "Sound Preferences" in order to use the keyboard or multimedia keys to change the volume. This latter step is a little annoying since it has to be done every time we connect. Does anyone have a solution that automatically makes this change when connecting?
I have a bluetooth-enabled notebook and I used to eventually turn on/off the wireless switch, which disabled wi-fi and bluetooth capabilities.Recently I turned on the switch to find the bluetooth icon missing from the Notifications area at the panel. When I type bluetooth-properties at the terminal a windows pops up saying "Your computer does not have any Bluetooth adapters plugged in." No further hardware/software changes were made recently.
I'm running a Debian on a laptop (actually a netbook: Asus EEE 1001PX) as a cheap homeserver. However I'd like it to automatically "shutdown -h NOW" when I remove the AC plug (switch it off at the wall). Otherwise I have to ssh to it and call it myself, and that just sucks Can I somehow detect the removal of AC power and upon that run a script ?
I have Lenovo Thinkpad R400 laptop. It has Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo processor with ATI Radeon 3400 series graphics card and Intel Mobility chipset series 4 Integrated graphics controller. I have Squeeze ( stable) installed on it with kernel 2.6.32-5-686 .
My laptop gets very hot within 10 minutes whether I do any task or not. Also battery life is almost 40% as compared to Windows. I am more worried about temperature as it remains completely cool in windows. Mostly CPU load remains around 10% and CPU spends 99.99% time at 800MHz clock. I believe heat generated is by graphics card chipset.
Following are some information about my machine

On my Laptop, I installed Debian under the file "/" and the partition on which I have all my files under "/var". While this isn't really a big issue, when I originally installed Debian, I had the intention of having all of my files on a partition that I would auto-mount later so that when I upgrade my system by reinstalling it, I would only have to change the system partition and let everything else stay the same.. I can live without changing my /var if I can only do so by a re-install...
I have an acer timelinex 5830tg notebook. After weeks of frustration, i finally have a linux setup that is stable. Thank god for debian. I don't know why I mess with anything else. Anyway, i'm unable to get my built in laptop speakers to work. I get sound through headphone jack, and I hear sound coming from the built in speakers for a split second when plugging in/unplugging my AC adaptor.Let me know if there is any other output needed, which may assist in this issue. Hopefully someone can help me out.
