First of all: Hi! since this is my first post on the forum.
I recently installed OpenSuse 11.1 (kernel Linux 188.8.131.52-9-default x86_64) on a Toshiba Satellite U400 and generally it’s working fine, but I still have some problems:
is there a way to show some sort of message or icon when I press one of the Fn+FX combinations?
is there a way to get the extra hotkeys (play, pause etc.) to work? I have fnfx installed but I don’t know how to make it run, because the documentation for it is not available anymore.
I also tried using ktoshiba, but when I run it I get the message:
costi@linux-bxi5:~> ktoshiba getInstance(pad.cpp:16) --- waiting for lock...

However, the version of libsynaptic I use is the latest one…
- Bluetooth doesn’t work. What what I understand, this is quite a common problem…
I have installed kdebluetooth and kdebluetooth4 packages, but when I start kbluemon it says that no Bluetooth devices were found and then crashes. How do I solve this?
From what I understood, a solution for number 2 and 3 is patching/compiling the toshiba_acpi module, but I don’t know how to do it (as I said, I’m very new to the linux world).
Can someone help me set stuff up, or point me to an idiot-friendly tutorial on how to do it?
Any help is appreciated.
