FM Radio Tuner - Toshiba Laptop

Postby anandrkris on Sat Nov 24, 2012 9:23 am

Hi,

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with an in-built FM Antennae jack. Can you please point me to an utility using which i can tune-in and listen to FM radio stations. Also, are any additional drivers required to activate hardware? :?:

OS - Linux Mint 13 KDE Maya, 32-bit

Cheers,
Anand R

Check out Gnomeradio. http://projects.gnome.org/gnomeradio/. It might not work with Cinnamon.

Hi...Thanks for the response...I had installed Gnomeradio and another appln FM tools http://benpfaff.org/fmtools/index.html but unfortunately am getting an error that dev/mixer and dev/radio0 not found. I think the hardware is not getting detected by the application.
I have tried commands lspci and lsusb but am not able to identify which port maps to the Antennae jack.

Is your hardware supported by video4linux? There's a link to it on the Gnomeradio page.

Sincere apologies for getting back on this so late. I have been using my another laptop and this was gaining dust. Now, i have upgraded KDE to KDE 4.10.1 and it is all set-up for usage. I am not sure in first place - if kernel recognizes toshiba radio jack or not. How do I know if mine is supported by video4lan ?
I have also attahced dmesg output as file in case it it will provide any additional help.
I badly want this to work to prove to my brother that even in Linux I can get everything working.
