Toshiba Satellite L300D volume control

Hi all

I recently switched to systemd on my Toshiba laptop Satellite L300D and I can no longer use the custom buttons like volume/play/forward/mute/...etc. Since it worked out of the box when I first installed Arch I didnt pay attention to which kernel module was being loaded during boot before.

$ lsmod | grep toshiba
toshiba_acpi           11347  0 
sparse_keymap           2532  1 toshiba_acpi
wmi                     7195  1 toshiba_acpi
rfkill                 12568  4 cfg80211,toshiba_acpi,bluetooth

I noticed there is another module called "toshiba" but I am not able to load it, it complains that there is no such device.

$ modinfo toshiba
filename:       /lib/modules/3.6.2-1-ARCH/kernel/drivers/char/toshiba.ko.gz
description:    Toshiba laptop SMM driver
author:         Jonathan Buzzard <>
license:        GPL
intree:         Y
vermagic:       3.6.2-1-ARCH SMP preempt mod_unload modversions 686 
parm:           fn:User specified Fn key detection port (int)

Any suggestions ? I'm assuming it was caused by systemd but I'm a newbie really so I have no idea...
