Linux on the Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504 Laptop (XF86Config-4)

Back to the main page about Linux on the Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504.

This XF86Config-4 file has been made for this configuration:

  • It uses xfree86 4.1.0-9 (the "9" is a Debian revision i guess)
  • It configures:
    • the main screen using both drivers (they both work fine):
      • the NVIDIA (you can download it from debian) The NVIDIA readme says you must coment out GLcore and dri in this file in the Module section at the beginning. I did that and works fine, even if i didnt notice any difference, for now.... THe difference i noticed betwen the two drivers is that i can have a shadow under the mouse...-you can disable it if you dont like it- and i can fade when i start the xscreensaver, which is not posible with the xfree86 driver....Don't ask me why?
      • the driver provided by xfree86
    • the intel driver for the external monitor
    • the keyboard. (You can set and use the _menu_ button, i use with sawfish to popup the apps ..menu. I think the Windows key can be used as well.but i didnt have time to investigate that too)
    • Touchpad (it is very important you build the corect modules in the kernel....(so check USB in my kernel config).
    • External USB Mouse (Genius with wheel, works the wheel very well, as wel as third button).
