IT HAD BEEN Not Without Its Problems

Previously I wrote about installing Ubuntu 8.10 on the Toshiba Satellite L305. It had been not without its problems, the hardware on Toshiba systems can be fairly picky. The omnibook module got the brightness and fan keys working, but on some operational systems, this also caused the laptop to show itself on three to quarter-hour after being turn off. The good news for those who had this nagging problem is that in 9.04, the fan problem is fixable with no module easily, and with a few workarounds, the brightness keys work too.

Furthermore, wireless now computes of the package with the ath5k module, so madwifi or ndiswrapper are much longer necessary no. If you’re already running the omnibook module without this problem, I would recommend using that instead, as it is an easier fix. Download and set up Ubuntu 9.04. If you ask me, the DVD drive in the L305 can be considered a little picky, so I recommend either setting up from a usb stay or burning up the Ubuntu CD at a slower velocity. The installation should efficiently go. When it boots to your new Ubuntu desktop, you first need to get the fan going.

This is a fairly easy fix, all you have to do is change your grub document. You can use nano, vi, date, or whatever your selected text message editor is. Reboot and your enthusiast should work fine. In my experience, it transforms on at about 50 levels and turns back off at about 35. Your brightness keys might now be usable, too.

In my experience, though, these secrets stop working after a few reboots. I wanted to make sure that the fan was working properly, so I wanted to monitor the computer’s temperatures. This is easy to do by setting up the lm-sensors bundle. It’ll ask a whole great deal of questions, the defaults should all be fine, though when asked easily want to add the modules to /etc/modules, I say yes. Add the sensors applet to the -panel and you ought to have the ability to monitor your temps. For some good reason, after several reboots, the function tips no longer work for me.

It seems the function key (fn) doesn’t get input. I’ve developed a workaround to make the super (Windows) key to work with F6 and F7 to change brightness levels. First you need to change the keyboard with xmodmap to permit the use of the super-key, because by default it is set to another use. Though it is changeable through Gnome supposedly, No good fortune has been experienced by me.

It is actually rather easy to do manually though. First open up a run and system web. Strike the home windows look and key for the keycode output. On my computer, it is 147, though may be different (there are many different models of L305s). Xmodmap (note the dot and the administrative center X).

Save and close the file, run xmodmap then. F7 to the brightness keys. This is doable with xbindkeys, which is installable in the console, and you may also need the keytouch daemon: (sudo apt-get install xbindkeys keytouch). You are also have to set up the linear bundle to find out what the event keys are for your brightness keys.

Lineage comes with a program called test. Run it (as main) on the various events in /dev/input/ until you find the one with brightness event codes. Now it’s time to check it. F7 to ensure they adjust the brightness as they need to. If everything is set up right, your lighting should be changing now!

As long as the tips are working, the thing left to do is to make xbindkeys operate on boot. The following is the only way I’ve been able to find to get that to work (in scripts make it run prematurely. And it segfaults). Many thanks to Ubuntu Forums user BslBryan because of this tip!
