I've just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my TC1100 to get rid of some issues with stylus button and a PCMCIA Aircard.
The rotation works properly, this is the code I used (get from internet):
Initially I wasn't able to make the sylus rotate, but this was because the stylus wasn't recognized as mouse device in xorg.conf file.
DEVS=`xsetwacom list dev | \
sed -e 's/ *$//g' -e 's/\(.*\) .*/\1/g' -e 's/ *$//g'`
ROTATION=`xrandr --verbose --query | \
grep 'default connected' | \
sed -e 's/^.*(.*) \(.*\) (.*).*$/\1/'`
# Rotate all detected wacom devices to the given direction.
for DEV in $DEVS; do
xsetwacom set $DEV rotate $1
if [[ ! $ROTATION == "normal" ]]; then
xrandr -o normal
xrandr -o left
here's the code I added to xorg.conf:
A problem I have is that the stylus have to be activated by terminal command:
Option "Type" "stylus"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
#Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
Option "Button2" "3"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen"
InputDevice "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
So I'm trying to set this command on system startup (but I don't know how).
echo "1" > /dev/input/wacom
Another problem I have with 9.04 release is that xbindkeys doesn't work at all, so I'm still not able to have the stylus and Q buttons working.
I didn't install the madwifi wireless driver since the wi-fi connection is fast and smoothly working, do you suggest to install this driver anyway?
