Well, I tried the toshiba tools but this is the output I receive:
msb01:/usr/src# toshset -fan on
required kernel toshiba support not enabled.

So it seems that I have to recompile the kernel with CONFIG_ACPI and
CONFIG_ACPI_TOSHIBA flags enabled.

Anyone knows if there ere stock debial kernel with these flags enabled?
