[Bug 1268880] Re: unable to toggle microphone mute on T410 / unable to unload thinkpad_acpi module


Mute/unmute of microphone works with kernel 3.14.0-031400-generic (64bit

I have a Thinkpad T410 with devel. branch of 14.04

But there is something a bit strange: If I mute unmute the mic. I get
the same symbols in the upper right corner as if I mute/unmute the
speakers. Is it supposed to be like that???

  unable to toggle microphone mute on T410 / unable to unload
  thinkpad_acpi module

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I recently pressed the physical microphone mute button on my Lenovo
  T410. However, I am now unable to unmute it. The orange light next to
  the mic mute button comes on when the kernel boots, but pressing it
  has no effect.

  Possibly related to this, I am now unable to unload the thinkpad_acpi
  kernel module (required to run the fan in disengaged mode to work
  around the long-standing bug 751689) as it seems to be permanently
  hooked into the sound drivers:

  $ sudo modprobe -r thinkpad_acpi
  modprobe: FATAL: Module thinkpad_acpi is in use.
  $ sudo lsmod|grep thinkpad_acpi
