I'm not sure If I'll ever do that, since I don't update the web page that often. But what you can do is to monitor the project at SF.net and it will send an email every time a new version of KToshiba is out.

 Problem with ktoshib

Hi.

I have a Satellite SM40-230 laptop and I have problems with the rpm and compiling ktoshiba 0.11. I use openSuSE 10.2.

I can install the rpm without problems, however when I try to configure ktoshiba I get the error: I can't find the library ktoshibam. I can't find kcm_ktoshibam.la.

I tried to compile the source but I have the next error:

toshibafnactions.cpp: In member function ‘void ToshibaFnActions::toggleMousePad()’:
toshibafnactions.cpp:271: error: ‘m_SCIIface’ was not declared in this scope

Can someone help me with this errors? Thanks.

Weird, where did you get the rpm from?

Open a konsole and type:

kcmshell ktoshibam

and send me the output of it.

And about the source code, yeah, there's a problem I didn't saw, just replace

m_SCIIface to m_SCIface

and the code should compile, didn't spoted that one because I always compile with libsynaptics support. I'll upload an updated source package today in about 30 minutes.

Hi,

Thank you very much for your application. It is a must have for all toshiba notebook owners.

Just wanted to make few notes/suggestions.
1. The machine model is not correctly recognized - it says Tecra M2/Sattelitte and it should say Tecra M4.
2. Enabling of bluetooth does not work.
3. Changing of battery save mode does not work.(does not cycle, only full power is selected)
4. It allows me to choose hyperthreading which is not available on my CPU.
5. On this machine there is Fn-Space, Fn-1, and Fn-2 which can be used as function keys too.

Using toshset command line utility I can enable bluetooth, also I can change the battery save mode without problem.
I will be glad if I can help with anything to further develop this app.

Hope you can note these in the next version. Keep up the good work

Cheers

Hi there,

1. Well, the machine id number is shared between several models and I might not have your model name on my list. I'll add it, thanks for the report.

2. Assign the Bluetooth On/Off to any Fn-F# key and press that ssigned key a couple times and send me the output of"

'cat .xsession-errors | grep ktoshiba'

3. For the BSM to work, the laptop must be running on batteries in order to cycle between the different modes, if indeed you laptop is running on batteries and it does not cicle, again, try changing the BSM and send me the output of the file mentioned on 2.

4. Again, send me the output of the stuff at 2.

5. Cool, just tell me what they are supposed to do and I'll try to implement the actions needed.

I have plans to add a configuration dialog to all remaining Fn-something hotkeys, so that all the Fn combos can be used.

Saludos

Hi,

Indeed BSM works only when I'm on battery.
It will be good If I can switch to other modes when ac is pluged too. BSM is connected with the fan on this model, also sometimes I use the laptop completely without battery, and like swithing BSM to battery save to be able to turn off the fan to get more quiet env. (BSM is connected with voltages of the CPU and is alterting the CPU performance. So even CPU runs in 2GHZ if BSM is low CPU will run low performance.)
Finally in my bios there is Cooling mode switch: Max Pref, Perf, Battery Optimized. I think this is corresponding to Battery Save mode in toshset/ktoshiba but it is a kind of cooling mode. But I can not change it with cooling mode in toshset, only I can change it with BSM.

Here is the output of xsession-errors:
---------
ktoshiba: KToshiba: SCI interface opened successfully.
ktoshiba: KToshiba: SCI version: 2.82
ktoshiba: ERROR: KToshibaSMMInterface::getPointingDevice(): Could not get Pointing Device status. (Funtion Not Supported)
ktoshiba: ERROR: KToshibaSMMInterface::getHyperThreading(): Could not get Hyper-Threading mode. (Funtion Not Supported)
ktoshiba: KToshiba: BIOS version: 3.532 7/1/2003

ktoshiba: KToshibaSMMInterface::setBluetoothPower(): Bluetooth device disabled successfully
ktoshiba: KToshibaSMMInterface::setBluetoothControl(): Bluetooth device detached successfully
ktoshiba: KToshibaSMMInterface::setBluetoothPower(): Bluetooth device disabled successfully
----------

This is after toggling few times.
Fn-1 and Fn-2 have - and + icons respectively. (Used to decrease increase resolution of display in win. but probably is good to be used for volume control :)).
Fn-space have kind of magnifier glass

I think there is still some small problem with KToshiba CPU usage. When running top shows always 9-10% CPU usage atleast for ktoshiba

Hi there:

Try the code from SVN, from Konsole do:

svn co https://ktoshiba.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/ktoshiba/branches/KToshiba/0.4.0 ktoshiba

mkdir ktoshiba/build && cd ktoshiba/build

cmake ..
make
./src/ktoshiba

Once running, see if it outputs any errors or messages and try pressing the Fn combos again.

KToshiba listen to computer_logicaldev_input_2 and platform_i8042_i8042_KBD_port_logicaldev_input HAL devices to receive hotkey events, to know which HAL device your laptop's sending events to, open a tab on the existing Konsole (Ctrl+Shift+N) or open a new one and type:

lshal -m

once done it, press an Fn combo (eg: Fn-F1) and you should get something like this:

Start monitoring devicelist:
-------------------------------------------------
22:23:32.859: computer_logicaldev_input_2 condition ButtonPressed = coffee

If your device is different from the ones above, then let me know so I can add it too.

I'm not sure about that error, I'm using openSUSE 11.1 as well, but I'm using KDE4 rc2 and don't have those problems.

Try upgrading to rc2 (or even wait for rc3) and see if it solves the cmake problems.

Oh, and make sure you have the -devel package installed as well.

For the moment yes.

Since NetworkManager provides a D-Bus call that can do the job, and I haven't found any other service that provides the same functionality. If you (or someone else) knows of another D-Bus service that provides a similar functionality not dependable on NetworkManager, let me know.

And for the time being you can live w/o Fn-F8 support, unless using NM.

Well, it returns the same error to me, I'm using KDE4.2.4, seen that
knotificationitem will be insert the next KDE release(I mean, KDE4.3) in the kdelibs package I'll wait KDE4.3, I tried to compile by hand kdelibs-experimental_4.2.95, well, it returns an error too, but it's normal 'cause they require some dependence that I haven't got yet(using KDE4.2.4), this software will work on KDE4.3 for sure. :)

I've a question to ask to the developer of this software, can I package it for slackware? I mean, the next slackware release(13.0) will have KDE 4.2.4(or 4.2.5), seen that I'm in -current for 1 year can I package it for you? You should know that in slackware there are compilations really made well by packagers, it consists in making a script bash that makes a package and a clean installation for the programs, look at a slackbuild(on slackbuilds.org or slacky.eu) to see how it's made :) This might be useful for you and for users, maybe it will insert in some slackware-current repository(unofficial obviously), tell me what you think, I ca do it for you :) .

Start monitoring devicelist:
-------------------------------------------------
14:47:16.354: platform_i8042_i8042_KBD_port_logicaldev_input condition ButtonPressed = sleep

So:
Fn+F3 (suspend to ram) gives me this : platform_i8042_i8042_KBD_port_logicaldev_input condition ButtonPressed = sleep

Fn+F4 (suspend to HDD) gives me nothing at all

Fn+F1 (lock screen) gives me 'l' symbol (latin letter)[wtf?]

And i probably must notice, that volume control keys work just fine:
#lshal -m
Start monitoring devicelist:
-------------------------------------------------
14:50:40.466: platform_i8042_i8042_KBD_port_logicaldev_input condition ButtonPressed = mute
14:50:45.328: platform_i8042_i8042_KBD_port_logicaldev_input condition ButtonPressed = volume-up
14:50:47.985: platform_i8042_i8042_KBD_port_logicaldev_input condition ButtonPressed = volume-down

Mute is Fn+Esc, and vol-up/down are triggered by vol slider on the front
All these actions actually perform volume up\down\mute on my kde desktop. Though i don't know, what module is responsible for this.

That Fn-F1 giving you an "l" key is familiar, and I've seen it even w/ my laptop (X205-S9800) before the hotkeys were handled by the kernel drivers.

Which kernel driver are you using, toshiba_acpi or omnibook?

If the hotkeys are being processed by a kernel driver, then you just need to map them to the appropriate keycodes, check dmesg for something like this:

atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0x6e on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes 6e <keycode>' to make it known.

Whenever you press Fn-F4 or other Fn-Fsomething key. And if that is the case, you might need to edit and/or create an FDI file, so HAL can pick it up and map those keys for you.

Ugly, after a quick Google search, it seems that your laptop uses an Insyde H2O BIOS, thats why toshiba_acpi is not working (and probably will never do...).

Your chances are w/ the omnibook module, grab it from trunk and test it. It is a messy job, but hopefully at the end you can have your laptop Fn keys supported (as well as some other stuff).

Write me to my e-mail (listed above) and I will try to help you set up the omnibook module.

good news, that ktoshiba from svn launched
(i didn't noticed that - i thought that warning about absent networkmanager was an error)

But ktoshiba acts strange:
when i press Fn+F3(Sleep. The only key, that correctly recognized by lshal as "platform_i8042_i8042_KBD_port_logicaldev_input condition ButtonPressed = sleep") ktoshiba locks the screen... i thought it must be sleep.

Yes that is expected for the omnibook module, once installed, here comes the tedious part of it, do as follows:

  • modprobe omnibook

  • dmesg | grep "omnibook: Enabled features"


  • For me this is what it outputs:
    omnibook: Enabled features: blank bluetooth cooling display fan hotkeys dmi version lcd temperature wifi throttling.


    The support we are looking for is "hotkeys". You probably just have "dmi" and "version"

    Heres what you have to do:

  • modprobe omnibook ectype=10

  • dmesg | grep "omnibook: Enabled features"

  • rmmod omnibook


  • Do that w/ every ectype starting w/ ectype=10 all the way to ectype=15 (told ya it was tediuos work...)

    And email me the results, since I can't seem to post more replies here.


    And now, for the sleep key, it does what is is supposed to do, but you computer might not have sleep support yet.

    Message: "No such object path '/org/kde/Solid/PowerManagement/Actions/KeyboardBrightnessControl

    although the widget appears and I can switch through the modes, but again no change in brightness.
    Any suggestions?

    Sorry for the late reply (I'm on vacations).

    KToshiba does not handle brightness directly, instead it relies on KDE and DBus to perform certain actions (like brightness).

    Which icon is on top of FN-F2, a bulb or a brightness one (wheel with triangle)?

    What is the output of: ls /sys/class/backlight

    Some Toshiba laptops come with broken backlight AML code, I have a patch ready to be sent to the kernel.

    Hello, the problem could be solved by adding acpi_backlight=vendor to the kernel command line. Now FN+F2 changes brightness according to the modes. Even the KDE slider is working now.

    How do you like Plasma 5?
     The best KDE Desktop ever.
     Definitely a nice improvement.
     Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
     I do not like some of the changes.
     KDE is taking the wrong way.
     I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
     I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
