Ubuntu :: Capitols V And M Not Working Properly - Toshiba Laptop?

Mar 26, 2011

Capitols v and m not working properly! Toshiba laptop. So far I'm v happy with Ubuntu, works really well! However, I have a madening problem: when typing I cannot use the right hand Shift key with either or if I do, the v looks like $V, and the capitol m ends up giving me a pulldown menu. I assume this is not common to Ubuntu, but maybe it is?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Trouble Getting Toshiba Laptop Audio Working Properly

Apr 23, 2010

So, help me through getting my audio working properly on my Toshiba Satellite A105-S2081 Laptop. I think I've been through most of the help messages and tried many things to get it working correctly. The ONLY thing that has helped is to go to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and change model=auto to model=generic. (options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 power_save_controller=N model=generic)

I've tried model=toshiba, model=auto, model=lenovo, model=3stack, model=dallas and the laptops internal sound device disappears from the list of sound devices. If I plug in my Logitech Headset, it seems to work fine.It also seems to work fine if I boot it up into XP SP3.It does work now generally with model=generic, but not sure that everything works properly, like the headset & microphone jack. (Actually the reason I have the Logitech Headset is because the headset jack doesn't work).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Toshiba A660 Laptop - Microphone Not Working

Sep 1, 2011

I have a Toshiba Satellite A660 laptop with Ubuntu 10.04. I am sure that the internal microphone works because when I reboot into Windows it works fine. It does not work in Ubuntu instead. I tried three things:

1) Action: I checked all the volumes, made sure that the microphone is not muted and selected the proper device as "Analog Stereo Duplex".
Result: no improvements.

2) Action: I installed PulseAudio to better manage the volumes.
Result: no improvements.

3) Action: in the Terminal, I executed the line " sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf " and then added the line " options snd-hda-intel model=toshiba " at the bottom of the page that opened. I saved, closed and rebooted.
Result: no improvements.

I executed in the Terminal the command " wget [URL]. The link to where data were uploaded is [URL].

Ubuntu :: Use Bluetooth In Toshiba LapTop?

Jan 16, 2010

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A200-21T LapTop with Ubuntu 9.10

I used to have dual boot with windows Xp but i shoot windows out (Sorry bill )

In windows i was able to use bluetooth with my nokia phone.

The wireless hardware button in the laptop is on. There is no option it the bios to turn off the bluetooth, so i'm sure that the machine is booting with bluetooth on.

i run this command in terminal:

Code:
ruival@ruimadlinux:~$ cat /var/log/dmesg | grep Blue*
[ 0.380007] Bluetooth: Core ver 2.15
[ 0.380012] Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized

Ubuntu Networking :: D-Link DWA-652 On Toshiba Laptop

Jan 3, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Get Resolution To Be 1024x768 On Toshiba Satellite Laptop

Jul 3, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu on my Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Laptop. Everything runs great except that the resolution will not go above 800x600. I had this problem before on the same laptop and was able to fix it but cannot find the fix now (I had to wipe my laptop clean in order to remove some pesky Windows partitions and reinstall Ubuntu) I have found several "fixes" but none work. I tried the one below as well as it applies almost perfectly to my problem

"I just installed the latest ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba-Tecra having "Trident Microsystems Cyberblade XP4m32" Monitor. After install resolution is defaulted to 800x600. I followed a method advised in some threads (arount xrandr and cvt) to increase the size (my laptop works with 1024x768 under XP). This was done OK and I obtained the resolution 1024X768 appearing in the drop list resolution options of the Monitor preferences but when I select the option if fails. Alternatively, when I execute $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_60.00 i got the message "xrandr : screen cannot be larger than 800x600 (desired size 1024X76

I also saw a possible fix proposing to add "HorizSync 31.50-48.00" in Xorg.conf but I then I DO NOT have such a file in my /etc/x11/ after ubuntu install (supposing that this will fix my problem !!!)

Boot into recovery mode, when you get to the command line type:

sudo Xorg -configurewhich will create a default /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Add the lines:
HorizSync 31.0 - 70.0
VertRefresh 40.0 - 75.0to the Monitor section then reboot."

However when I entered the "sudo Xorg -configure" line my computer spit back saying that "sudo" is not an acceptable command

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Toshiba Laptop Turn Itself On After Few Minutes From Shutdown?

Oct 31, 2010

My Toshiba A300 laptop turns itself on after about 4 minutes from the shutdown. This doesn't happen with Win7. When it turns on, I shutdown using the power off button and it doesn't turn on again. I disabled all the wake options in the BIOS, also I uninstalled the ACPI, but this did not help. I also disabled the WOL in Ubuntu with "sudo ethtool -s eth0 wol d" before the shutdown, but this didn't helped too.

Ubuntu :: Toshiba Laptop Will Not Go To Sleep In 10.10 - Worked Fine In 10.04

Jan 8, 2011

I had screwed up a unsolvable Ubuntu install, so I had to reformat and reinstall. I did all that, installed my apps, but then saw and was convinced to upgrade to 10.10. It took forever, but it downloaded and installed the upgrade package. Since then, I have had a few issues that I had never had in 10.04. The other ones are in their own threads though. So, now when I either close my laptop lid or hit suspend, I can see it do some things, then either A. It goes to sleep. Or B. It just freezes.

No HDD activity, just those messages it displayed for suspending like it does when it works. I have screenshots attached of that. Also, in the default applet that provides you with the sleep option and shut-down, etc, sometimes the option Hibernate disapears. Now, I have seen how the menu is without it and like it that way. I think I need to be looking for a prefrence file for it, because I would like the option Hibernate to be removed from that menu.

1. How can I get the machine to go to sleep properly? This is mainly because I hate loosing what I am doing.

2. How do I remove the option "Hibernate" from Indicator Applet Session 0.4.6?

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Hangs After 10.4 Upgrade From 9.10 On Toshiba Laptop?

Sep 12, 2010

I just used Update Manager to upgrade to 10.4 and all I get is the Ubuntu logo screen with the dots and then the screen goes black and there's no other response. This happened after the upgrade completed installing and I received the message to restart the computer. I have never been able to get it to boot.

I can boot fine by selecting the next older kernal although I do get some messages that I don't understand. It all works so I presume it's OK. The kernal that was installed with the upgrade is 2.6.32-24-generic and I've seen other posts about boot problems with it. The laptop is dual boot with Windows XP and Windows boots normally. I saw a suggestion on another thread about booting into an older kernal and then issuing the sudo update-intramfs -u -k command. I tried it and it didn't help.

Next I tried 2.6.32-24-generic recovery mode and I tried the option to fix damaged packages. It seemed to do something although I saw error messages about not being able to find various software sources. I tried a normal boot afterwards and same problem. Recovery mode has another menu option about repairing grub but I don't want to try that. I'm not a power user and this is all over my head. Before I turn the laptop into an unusable door stop,

Debian Hardware :: CPU Heating On Toshiba Laptop

Apr 16, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Won't Install On Laptop - Toshiba Can't Boot From Jump Drive

May 8, 2010

I have a new laptop that I can install ubuntu on without hassle using a cd. I wanted to put it on my older Toshiba laptop (2003) for my little cousin to use to get on the internet and play games. When I boot from the CD the ubuntu logo comes up runs. It ask me my language then goes to the screen where I can choose "Try Ubuntu without installing it" "Install Ubuntu Now" etc. Ive tried clicking both install and try both launch the ubuntu logo it runs for about 4 min and then hangs on a black screen. I know it isn't the cd because I can use it on any other computer and it works. This Toshiba cannot boot from a jump drive though so that choice is out.

Ubuntu :: Toshiba Laptop - Hardware - Screen Goes Blank After Few Seconds - From Turning On

Sep 16, 2010

I'd like your input on this. A toshiba laptop screen goes blank after few seconds(from turning on).

At first i thought it was fan that was out and once it got hot enough it cut the laptop off like my old Acer did.

But after close examination i noticed that it continues working. HD still spining and fan blows..

Example: Turn on>Hit F2 to go in to Bios> Bios screen appears>Before i have a chance to do anything it geos blank but continues working> I hit Cntrl ALt Del> it resets and screen comes right back up>second later it goes blank again.

ALSO the toshiba logo and whole screen seems to have a red tint to it.

I also get a media test error but that is likely from hard drive not being there during some of the tests.

DO you think it can be an LCD Backlight issue? or possibly video card?

Debian Configuration :: How To Switch On Bluetooth ON TOSHIBA Laptop

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.

General :: Having Trouble Finding Right Distro For Toshiba Laptop

Jul 22, 2010

I'm having a lot of trouble finding a good Linux Distro that will work with my Toshiba A505-S6020. Here are some specs

i5-430M Intel Processor
4 GB RAM
NVidia Graphics Card
Realtek Network Adapter

One of the big problems I'm having is with the Network Adapter. It won't work with Ubuntu or any Ubuntu based distros. Backtrack 4 won't even start for me (there's a problem with the ACPI, and I'm not sure how to turn it off on Backtrack). Is there any distribution that I won't have to mess with the Kernels too much (I tried Gentoo, but that was a bit over my head)

Ubuntu Installation :: On Clean Install Of 10.04 Thunderbird 3 Hangs On Laptop Toshiba Tecra S1?

May 16, 2010

I have a problem with Thunderbird 3 on Ubuntu 10.04. When starting TB3 the 'mail account setup' box appears but can't type anything inthere... I can close the setup box... the main window is very unresponsive but cosing works also immediately. I fisrst did upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 having the problem. Thinking the upgrade might have gone wrong I did a complete fresh install on that laptop, even verified the CD with md5sum before installing. After the fresh and clean install the problem remains the same.

The machine having the problem is a Toshiba laptop Tecra S1 with 1GB of RAM. I do not experience any other problem with Ubuntu 10.04 on that machine, everything else runs like a charm, there also was no error during installation... I think this problem is related to the Toshiba Tecra S1 laptop because other machines I own don't have problems with TB3.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Connect Toshiba X205 Laptop To TV With HDMI?

Jul 4, 2011

Off and on for some time now I've been using a Toshiba x205-s9359 laptop with (11.4/KDE4.6) during the day as a general purpose laptop using the onboard LCD and in the evenings to run XBMC to play movies on a TV using an HDMI cable (no cable TV on our little island & Satellite TV is poor in the rainy season).

The video card is an NVidia GeForce 8700M GT with NVidia's proprietary driver v. 275.09.07 (installed the "hard way").

Audio info:

Code:
~> aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

[Code]....

Now the Audio/Video both go to the TV via HDMI if it's connected prior to boot, if not the laptop works normally.

If you try this with XBMC don't forget to go to set the XBMC settings to "HDMI" as needed.

Hardware :: Toshiba Tecra S2 Laptop - Symptoms Always Show After Pressing A Key

Apr 21, 2011

It feels like it is a keyboard problem because the symptoms always show after pressing a key.

In most instances, a line I am typing in "gedit" at the correct place in the text is unexpectedly continued a few lines downward even though no arrow key has been pressed. In another instance, I click "new thread" in Linuxquestions, a new window opens asking for a title, after entering the title I click "Click Here to Find Similar Threads", a new smaller window opens on top of the existing one and shows the existing options but as soon as I select (click on) one of these options, the main Linuxquestions window disappears and there is no option of "going back" to it and no "back" button to click.

If the keyboard needs cleaning, how do I do that? I found a few cleaning hints about separate keyboards but nothing about laptops.
