Notes

So far, everything seems to work out-of-the-box with Kubuntu 15.10, except for the automatic screen rotation and some of the special function keys. The keyboard backlight does not respond to Fn+Z, but can be controlled in the same manner as the Z30-A's, described on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Toshiba_Z30-A#Keyboard_Backlight_control

After resume from suspend no sound is produced from the speakers. Pulseaudio behaves normally. Headphones jack works too. I am using Linux 4.6 on ArchLinux. Does anyone have a similar problem?

I have the same problem. Have you found a solution? I've tried Ubuntu 16.04 and Fedora 23. Tried kernels 4.2, 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6
