Linux Compatibility

ProcessorYesObviously out of the box
ScreenYesautodetection works immediately
Optical DriveOptical drive? i do no see it.
Soundyesit works without headphones and external mic support. Some sort of patch seems already posted for this on alsa-devel ml, i will stay tuned.
Ethernetyes only with 2.6.32 and above (works well)
WirelessYesI'm browsing wireless, realtek drivers (gpl, but with binary firmware).
BluetoothNot Tested not tried yet.
USByes no problem
Card Readeryesno problem


suspend and hibernate work well, some of the hotkeys work well. With Debian there is no possibility of tuning display brightness, but i suspect that on ubuntu it works (some kernel module to install).
For now i can say that's a good machine. It's monocore but rather fast. I'm running xfce and is very responsive.
remember to activate click-to-tap (see synaptics driver documentation)


I'm very satisfied for the moment. It can be bought for use with linux. Remain to configure only headphones, ext mic, e brightness, i think they will be fix soon.

Thank you.

Backlight start to work after command
xrandr –output LVDS –set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL combination
and if cursor disapear, switch to terminal and back (ctrl+alt+f1, ctrl+alt+f7).

Thanks for the report!
I installed Xubuntu 9.10 on the (similar) T130, and the wifi works but after installing (with make and cp cause make install gave me an error) the realtek drivers.
The ethernet driver worked out of the box (maybe it's not the same, mine is Atheros AR8132).
Like you wrote, the display brightness is impossible to change, and I didn't find any module to install for that purpose (toshiba_acpi doesn't load).
I guess it has something to do with acpi, because the battery estimated time to charge is wrong, that's why it seems quite a problem to me (bad power management!).
Moreover, /proc/acpi/fan is empty…
How long can you use the computer before charging on AC?
Thanks again!
