When a turn on my laptop today I noticed that the screen is too dark, I look up in the power manager and the brightness is in the minimum, I changed in the max but nothing happens. In fact if the windows closes and open again the indicator is in the min.
What can I do???
My laptop is a Toshiba A305 with opensuse 11.2 and KDE 4.3.3
I just complete a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 on my Toshiba Qosmio F50-138.
I'm experiencing some trouble with the audio : My laptop has a built-in little sub-woofer that makes the global sound quite good.
In Ubuntu, I can't get to make this sub-woofer work.
My daughter's 64 bit Toshiba Satellite L655 suffered from the common Toshiba laptop problem of Invisible battery under Fedora 16.
dmesg | grep batt
would report Battery absent. This appears to be common with Toshiba laptops under Fedora, Ubuntu, Centos, Debian, and BackTrack Linux. Online research pointed to custom kernels, which sound like a headache; and a simpler way using Grub2.
