    Please post (e.g. by copy and paste from a terminal session) the output from
    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    and the version number output from
    Code:
    xsetwacom -V
    Mine look like this for 8.10:

    Code:
    $ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Section "InputDevice"
            Driver          "wacom"
            Identifier      "stylus"
            Option          "Device"        "/dev/input/wacom"      # Change to
                                                            # /dev/input/event
                                                            # for USB
            Option          "Type"          "stylus"
            Option          "ForceDevice"   "ISDV4"         # Tablet PC ONLY
            Option          "Button2"       "3" # This is the line you need for the stylus button to right click
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    #	Driver "nv"
    	Driver "nvidia"
    	Option "AddARGBVisuals" "True"
    	Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    	Option "NoLogo" "True"
    	Option "RandRRotation" "on"
    	Option "NvAGP" "1"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier	"Default Layout"
    	screen "Default Screen"
            InputDevice     "stylus"        "SendCoreEvents"
    EndSection
    
    $ xsetwacom -V
    0.1.7
    Ignore the nvidia stuff - concentrate on the stylus bits.

    I've just added an update to post 116 concerning hibernation with Intrepid.

    I've added a link to post #1 referring users to post #116. Perhaps you could keep that post up to date with new fixes, etc as they occur.

    I will - but for now I have retreated to Hardy again as I am on a course where there is occasional access to the internet via wireless, and the slow association problem in Intrepid is unbearable!

    EDIT: This was resolved using ndiswrapper and the XP wireless driver - so I'm now back on Intrepid again!
    And then later back again to Hardy, because of keyboard hotplugging crashing X...

    Re: HOW TO: Install Ubuntu on a HP TC1100 tablet pc

    I have just discovered that in *Hardy* the default "nv" driver will support rotation, and that the striping it shows in colour gradients at times can be prevented. I have the following entries in the "Device" section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    	Driver		"nv"
    	Option		"Rotate"	"RandR"
    	Option		"FlatPanel" "True"  # may not be needed
    	Option		"FPDither" "True"
    EndSection
    With this, I can at last rotate the screen for use as a tablet AND use standby successfully! I found it in 'man nv' - too obvious!

    I haven't tried it with Intrepid yet.

    Now if only I could get it to switch to the external screen using the nv driver...

    UPDATE: It does work with Intrepid too, so long as metacity compositing is turned off (and generates an X crash if it's on).

    Help! I cannot get the pen working after installing nVidia and wacom-tools and updating xorg.conf:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Driver          "wacom"

    #	Inputdevice	"Synaptics Touchpad"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
    	Load		"glx"
    EndSection
    When I query the device with xsetwacom, I get only a prompt back.

    I've tried uninstalling nVidia and wacom-tools and reinstalling in various combinations to no avail.

    I'll confess to being a newbie, but I had this working on this machine a month ago with a different hard drive. I am nearing wit's end so any new ideas would be very much appreciated.

    Xorg.conf looks right. Please post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log. To do that, start a command line, then paste in the following command:

    Code:
    zip  xlog.zip /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    Then go into advanced mode on your forum reply, click the paperclip icon, click the top 'browse' button and find the xlog.zip file just created.

    Wow, I can't believe you fixed it! I'm not sure what happened, but the pen has magically begun working again. I swear, I didn't do anything since posting, other than shutting down and running windows for a couple days.

    I have attached the log file (after stripping out all my passwords and bank account info). If you are able to tell what the problem was, it would be gratifying to know what the problem was. I'm sure I won't be the only one to find it useful.

    Thanks, it's folks like you that make me love linux!

    That log file gets overwritten on each login, so now it shows the successful startup, as far as I can see. Oh well, if it's working then let's leave it working and enjoy Christmas!
