To the best of my knowledge, the driver for the accelerometer you refer to (which my machine also has!) is not available in Linux, nor is the one that enables (on my machine) the Dolby Control Center. (I do miss my Dolby! LOL But I can do without, most of the time. Heck, the times I use the Harman/Kardon speakers on this laptop are fairly rare...)
And we apparently need to reinsert the Toshiba ACPI kernel extensions (at the least) back into the kernel. Two different Toshiba-specific kernel extension modules (extension ".ko") exist on my HD (have checked) but I have no idea (past a recompile!) how to tell the kernel to actually load
The last three times I've tried to recompile a kernel from sources have all failed before
I got to the configuration menu. And don't even ask how many warnings I got. Annoying stuff!)
[Update: Using instructions for the Quantal kernel from this thread http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=40185
I was able to get the fan going again, although it is actually a kernel in the bleeding-edge.]
