PostPosted: Tue 23 Aug 2011, 11:47    Post subject:  Puppy 5.28 in Toshiba laptop: video and wireless problems  

Hello, does anyone know where I would be able to get video card and wireless adapter drivers for this Toshiba Satellite laptop:
http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/retail-product.jsp?poid=2000002691

From the MAC address of the wireless LAN card, the mfg is LiteOn corp.

If I had to choose between video or wireless LAN, I would settle for XGA (1024x768) instead of the native resolution (1366x768). Thanks!

Have you tried to setup your wireless with the Internet connection wizard?
In Quickpet->drivers tab
Have you tested your graphics card and installed the recommended driver?

Thx bigpup. Yes, when I get into ICW, it recognizes my local ethernet port (eth0), but does not detect a wan0 port for wireless.

As for my video when I run xorgwizard, probe doesn't detect my card. XGA is my only resolution available.

What are spec's of the wireless device used.
Make sure wireless device is turned on.
For wireless try following these steps:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=65346
Be specific
You do what?
You see what?

For video:
On the desktop click on Quickpet->drivers
Run "click here to test your graphics card".
What does it say about your graphics card?

I had a Toshiba earlier this year that needed a reboot in Lucid 525.
Atheros® Wireless-LAN (802.11b/g/n) issue.

http://us.toshiba.com/computers/laptops/satellite-pro/C650/C650-EZ1540

Yours only says this....lazy buggers...

Wi-Fi® Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n)

but I wonder if it is the same problem.

""""""""""""""

I would use the latest Lucid 5.28 ...Lucid 5.2.8 is nicknamed Finlandia.

It still may need a reboot and a save file.
256mb = plenty.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855

or try >> Three-Headed Dog - kernel 2.6.37.6
Same great Puppy...updated kernel....better driver availability.
It might just work straight away.

An updated 3 headed dog will be uploadedin a week or two
because of installing without a hard drive issue.
This will not a problem in your case.


http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70736

""""""""""""""

I had to search for this one...
Maybe it's >> AR8152 driver for wired lan ??

Thanks to bigpup and cthisbear for your fast responses!! That's why I love Puppy Linux, the support is excellent!

So, I booted up on the pre-installed Win 7 OS and saw that Device Manager recognized the card as a Realtek RTL8188CE. Then I googled 'Realtek 8188 puppy linux' and the first hit was:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=555883&sid=f7eccdca79b682214e0d73c9f13b95c3

I followed tempestuous's hyperlink to his pet (r8192ce_pci-k2.6.33.2.pet), downloaded and installed it.

I then went into Puppy Network Wizard, clicked on 'Load Module', found the driver and loaded it. Good to go (submitting this post on my connected Toshiba).

As for the video driver, I am not terribly concerned about the lower resolution. I did install the 'Xorg High' driver in Quickpet and restarted X server, but didn't see any major improvements (not crying about it). I did notice however that when I attempt to select a resolution via Xorgwizard, resolution still doesn't improve but I lose the ability to 'click' using the built-in touchpad (got it back).

Thanks again for your help. Kudos to CatDude's informative screen shots.

I also have a Toshiba Laptop that came with win7.
I got the wireless to work fine.
But even though I got the webcam driver installed and the associated programs recognize it being there, trying to take a picture or a video errors out with "Timed out waiting for frame."

The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7005.
It runs win7 64bit, 4gigs ram, 320 gig hard drive, 17" screen.

I am waiting for Microsoft Update to drag this laptop down as every update seems to make the laptop run slower.
When I first got it, it flew and I got to the desktop very very fast.
Now, I get to watch the spinning circle busy cursor for a while before I can do anything.

With Puppy, it is boom to the desktop and instantly get to use any application I want.

But if you figure out how to get the webcam to actually work, pass it along.
Most of the posts on webcam use and software are a number of years old.

Hey 8-bit, go figure the camera is one thing that seems to work for me on the fly. At first I started scrambling for drivers/data on the web and then realized, let me just try the 'Guvcview webcam viewer' application found under 'Menu... Multimedia'. Sure enough, the blue LED lit up on my camera and there I was on the screen.

If there is any more info, I could provide, please let me know. Also, if there is a way for me to extract/package the driver and send it to you, please let me know as well. Thanks.

Guvcview was not included in Puppy Lucid 520.
I downloaded and installed it and I now have a working webcam.
But that is only if I boot Puppy directly and not inside of virtualbox.
I am happy though to have it working.
I have not tried it with Skype and my circle of friends that would have the capability of connecting with my that way is limited.

Okay gents. A few days ago I said I was fine with the video as is (1024x768), however I just now realized that I do not have sound. Oddly enough, Three-headed dog (5.2.9) does give me audio, but I would like to stick with 5.2.8. Is the following information enough to point me to where I could fine drivers, sfs, pets, and/or updated kernels to support these devices? Thanks.

I need an update.
Do you now have your wireless working?

Your information shows the wireless device as
Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter (rev 01)
It also shows a loaded driver for it being
Kernel driver in use: rtl8192CE
Kernel modules: r8192ce_pci

If you do not have wireless set up, run the network wizard -Internet by wired or wireless lan and see if a wireless device shown in the window.

Your audio device is shown as
Audio device: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
If you have a speaker icon on your task bar, there is a driver loaded and you can try the suggestion by Darkgame.
Also, if you see "Speaker" in the list when you run alsamixer, make sure it is also cranked all the way up.
I missed that on my Toshiba the first time and did not have sound until I cranked that setting up.

Thanks guys!

Okay, my wireless is working like a champ using the 8192ce driver (found fix at: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=555883&sid=f7eccdca79b682214e0d73c9f13b95c3).

As for audio:
1 - When I click on 'Menu... Multimedia... Alsamixer', a small window flashes up on my screen for 1 second and then disappears.
2 - There's no speaker on the bottom right-hand corner by my clock.
3 - When I click on 'Console' to open up Roxterm and type in 'alsaconf', the Alsa Wizard opens, builds the drive database, but then reports '... no device found'.
4 - An Alsa Wizard windows then pops up and reports that 'No supported Pnp or PCI card found. Would you like to probe legacy ISA sound cards/chip?'. When I click yes and go thru the options, it ultimately reports, 'no legacy cards found'.
5 - Also tried clicking on 'Menu... Setup... Alsa Sound Wizard' but get same results as step 4.

There's been a few times that I've had that icon missing too. But if I click where it should be, I get a volume slider.

Worth a shot . .

Thanks sfeeley.

I tried clicking (single left-clicks and right-clicks) around the 'systray' and still no go. No audio slider.

Is there any way to copy the audio driver from 5.2.9 and import it into 5.2.8?

When I boot up in 5.2.9, I do get audio, but I don't get wireless. The 8192ce wireless driver will not load up in 5.2.9 (gets compatibility error during pet installation). Furthermore I cannot shut down 5.2.9 through the menu (have to press and hold the power down to force a shutdown). That's why I choose 5.2.8, at least I have wireless.
