    Re: How to Rotate the Screen for a TX2000 Tablet PC

    Thanks favux! It worked, but I figured out quickly that you have to use the rotate with cairo on openGL only. Unfortunately for me cairo with openGL is super glitchy, any advice on this? I can't seem to disable the autohide with openGl cairo either. Is there a better dock that is more compatible, i really like cairo without openGL, but I would rather have screen rotate. Thanks again!

    Hi ioasw,

    Good, glad it's working for you.

    I think the ATI proprietary drivers in Karmic are suppose to finally support OpenGL, FYI.

    Have you tried using:

    cairo-dock -c (the cairo starting command)

    rather than?:

    cairo-dock -o (the openGL command)

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Ok so jaunty doesn't support openGL, ok got it. I do have the -c on ciaro, and the dock does appear at the bottom of screen when i rotate, but i get two ciaro docks one in the middle of the screen that seems to be stuck in the regular normal mode and then a good one that works at the bottom. I have to manually close out of the middle one to get it off. I believe this has been addressed before but I can't seem to find it; so if you know where its at maybe you could point me in the right direction, or just tell me what you think. Thanks again!

    Hi ioasw,

    If you are using the Cairo Dock from Synaptic Package Manager you have an old version.

    Try: http://www.cairo-dock.org/ww_page.ph...sitory&lang=en

    Re: How to Rotate the Screen for a TX2000 Tablet PC

    Hey There,

    So I am trying to get this working with my HP tx1000 I have the following in the .sh file:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh 
    
    # Find the line in "xrandr -q --verbose" output that contains current screen orientation and "strip" out current orientation. 
    
    rotation="$(xrandr -q --verbose | grep 'connected' | egrep -o  '\) (normal|left|inverted|right) \(' | egrep -o '(normal|left|inverted|right)')" 
    
    # Using current screen orientation proceed to rotate screen and input tools. 
    
    case "$rotation" in 
        normal) 
    #    -rotate to the right 
        xrandr -o right 
        xsetwacom set stylus rotate  CW 
        xsetwacom set touch rotate CW 
        xsetwacom set eraser rotate CW  
        ;; 
        right) 
    #    -rotate to normal 
        xrandr -o normal 
        xsetwacom set stylus rotate NONE 
        xsetwacom set touch rotate NONE 
        xsetwacom set eraser rotate NONE 
        ;; 
    esac
    And when I run the file in terminal I get the following error(s):

    Code:
    jeff@lintouch:~$ ./.flipscreen.sh
    X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
      Major opcode of failed request:  154 (RANDR)
      Minor opcode of failed request:  2 (RRSetScreenConfig)
      Serial number of failed request:  14
      Current serial number in output stream:  14
    ./.flipscreen.sh: 24: xsetwacom: not found
    ./.flipscreen.sh: 24: xsetwacom: not found
    ./.flipscreen.sh: 24: xsetwacom: not found
    Any ideas/suggestions?

    Thanks,
    ~Jeff

    Hi beastrace91,

    My fault, I forgot to tell you to remove the xsetwacom lines in the script since you don't have a wacom tablet.

    The TX1000 has nVidia I'm pretty sure so like it says in Appendix 1 you need to add:
    Code:
    	Option		"RandRRotation"  "on"
    To your video "Device" section so that it looks something like:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    	Driver		"nvidia"
    	Option		"NoLogo"	"True"
    	Option		"RandRRotation"  "on"
    EndSection
    The TX2z thread you were on: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...77#post7863677 At step 3 shows you how to back up and edit xorg.conf. I have some more links I'll post on your other thread in a bit.

    Re: How to Rotate the Screen for a TX2000 Tablet PC

    I've installed the magick-rotation 2.5.2 script on a TX2500z running Karmic. The rotation works well; however, the stylus does not follow when rotated (the directions are all off.) All other rotation scripts have the same problem. Any ideas what could be causing this? I thought perhaps the problem was with the xorg.conf file, but it seems that Karmic doesn't have one anymore. I've tried with both the default graphics driver as well as the flgrx. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Hi jpeter55,

    This sounds like the same problem in Jaunty. The 10-wacom.fdi is not parsing the wacom device names correctly.

    The wacom devices won't rotate unless in a terminal:
    Code:
    xsetwacom list
    returns their names: stylus, eraser, and touch.

    To see what HAL/dBus is calling them enter:
    Code:
    xinput --list
    Is touch working for you?
