Welcome to the Toshiba Linux Utilities pages. The purpose of these pages is
to act as reference point for my small series of programs to control the more
Toshiba specific aspects of their laptops. In particular they allow many of the
settings controlled by either Toshiba's MaxTime or Power Saver utilities to be
changed under Linux. The code is licensed under the GNU Public licence
These utilities are designed for Linux, in there current state they will
not compile or run on other Unix or Unix like operating systems, however
I would happly accept patches that change this situation.
However do not bother to contact me with questions about anything relating
to using Toshiba laptops or this software on a Microsoft operating system.
For such support please contact your nearest Toshiba Authorized Dealer
The Toshiba Linux utilities are specific to Toshiba laptops, and will not
run on laptops from other manufactures. If you are a laptop manufacture and
would like utilites such as these for your laptops under Linux then I will be
happy to write them. However you will need to provide the hardware, full
technical documentation and compensate me for my time. If you are still
interested I can be contacted at the address given below and will be happy
to discuss it further.
I can be reached via email at email@example.com.
However it is generally pointless to ask me questions about setting Linux up on
a particular laptop model. The chances are that I don't have access to the
model in question and/or I will most likely be unfamiliar with the distribution
you are using.
For the record I currently own a Tecra 780DVD and a Libretto 50CT and I use
the GNU/Debian Linux distribution. I currently have on loan from Toshiba Europe
a T4900, Satellite 310CDT and Tecra 750CDT. I no longer own a Satellite Pro
