Linux kernel module to suporte Tecra laptops
This is a kernel module that supports
all of the features in the the Toshiba Tecra laptop that I
have, including LCD brightness, bluetooth and wireless
control, Fn key detection, etc.
Be aware that some of the functions will need to have the su
pport of a userland tool, since the Fn keys always return the
same scancode to X; what makes the difference is the value
tha t is captured and made available in
/proc/acpi/tecra/hotkey. A userland utility can watch the
value and take actions (e.g. calling the mixer application,
locking the session, etc).
This isn't very polished yet but it is a start. I hope it
will be useful.
Special regards should be made to Thorsten Zachmann for the
smi_command that is the bulk of the complex work and to John
Belmonte in which module mine was based; also a thank you is
in order to Toshiba Linux Support who made available the
technical documentation necessary to make this module
