Unhappy FnFx giving errors?? Please help


Okay I'm trying to fully configure my Toshiba M30X, I'm trying to use FnFx so I can switch the video over to s-vid in the back or use the fn keys. I used synaptic to grab fnfx and fnfx-clients,
in /etc/modules I put the link toshiba_acpi
in my kernel config I enable the acpi and the toshibia_acpi

now when I use sudo fnfxd I get
fatal error: Could open /proc/acpi/toshiba/keys.

Please make sure that your kernel has enabled the Toshiba option in the ACPI section.
For more information read the documentation and/or http://fnfx.sf.net/index.php?section=doc#kernel.


looking on their documents online it say I should recompile the kernel, however the kernel already has the toshiba_acpi in the options (Ubuntu 5.04) any ideas?
I'm lost and I really need to get this working.

I'm getting the same error I think (I don't remember if this was the exact error and now I can't check, I'll do it later). The problem is the same anyway. I have the modules built-in in the kernel correctly, but I don't have the entry /proc/acpi/toshiba. I have /proc/acpi but not the /proc/acpi/toshiba. So, nothing work.

Do either of you have the directory /proc/acpi/toshiba? If not, and you're using a kernel 2.6.13-rc3 or later, then try booting with acpi_specific_hotkey on the cmdline. The Generic Hotkey driver went in between -rc2 and -rc3, and this boot option let's us use our toshiba_acpi driver.
If this works, you can make it permanent by adding:

append "acpi_specific_hotkey"

to your lilo.conf
