    Re: Sony Vaio Fit Multi-Flip

    Just found a fix for multi touch for the touchpad using this bug report which works for a yoga (and also my vaio flip 13)

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1166442 comment #137

    sudo dkms ldtarball psmouse-elantech-x551c.tar.gz
    sudo dkms install -m psmouse -v elantech-x551c
    sudo rmmod psmouse
    sudo modprobe psmouse

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...h-x551c.tar.gz

    still looking for auto rotate or at least rotate with keyboard/touchscreen working, if found I will definitely get rid of this W8 c**** hope somebody will find a fix to this as this all why the vaio flip is such a good device

    hope it helps

    Hi again Vaio friends

    After some research I found a quite nice workaround to get the screen rotation with the touchscreen rotating as well! using a script (each execution does a 90° turn of screen+touchscreen )

    based on this script:
    https://gist.github.com/rubo77/daa26...-screen-sh-L73

    You need to change those parameters to match the vaio flip inputs as this script was made for yoga laptops at first:

    TouchscreenDevice='ELAN Touchscreen'
    TouchpadDevice='SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad'

    to:

    TouchscreenDevice='N-trig DuoSense'
    TouchpadDevice='ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad'

    make the script runable (chmod u+x) then run it with no argument on a terminal:

    # ./script.sh

    there you go, 90° turn with touchscreen every time you run it!

    So now you have a functional touchpad and the possibility to use the rotation via a command!

    Re: Sony Vaio Fit Multi-Flip

    Thanks a lot Mizou2, this is really great, works fine. In my case I am using Ubuntu 14.04 with my Vaio fit 13, the only issues is that I had to put this in a script to run as root in the init.d, becouse otherwise when I reboot the module is not loaded.
    In the case of the screen rotation sometimes it appears black and I have to try it several times
