I'd read/tried similar advice.

toshset requires the 'toshiba' module to be loaded, but that won't
load on my laptop.

# toshset -q
required kernel toshiba support not enabled.

# modprobe toshiba
FATAL: Error inserting toshiba
(/lib/modules/2.6.30-2-686/kernel/drivers/char/toshiba.ko): No such

# dmesg | tail -1
[12930.555045] toshiba: not a supported Toshiba laptop
