    Hi Favux,

    No hp-wmi

    This is what I get:

    Code:
    docaltmed@arran:~$ lsmod | grep hp-wmi
    docaltmed@arran:~$

    Hi Hi Docaltmed,

    Something in the update could have broken the modules dependencies so you could try:
    Code:
    sudo depmod -a
    and reboot.

    Otherwise add it to modules like the HOW TO in post #225 shows you.

    I did just a plain "lsmod" and did find that something called "hp_wmi" is running, but no "hp-wmi".

    I'll try sudo depmod -a and let you know what happens.

    The "sudo depmod -a" command worked!

    Thank you once again, Favux.

    You are a prince among men.

    same thing here:
    hp_wmi has been loaded instead of hp-wmi.

    but this doesn't prevent automagic_rotation.sh to work because with hp_wmi
    /sys/devices/platform/hp-wmi/tablet shows the correct values when open or close...

    Hi marranzano,

    I think '_' and '-' are equivalent in modules. I think I read it in the man page or somewhere a while ago. It was something messed up in the module dependencies by the update I guess.

    I use a slightly modified version (and combination) of some scripts appearing in this thread - someone may be interested:

    Hi, I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 and the latest fglrx driver from the ATI website on a tx2z, yet rotating the screen for me does nothing really but garble it.

    I set up my system according to the tutorial on page 8 here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1038898&page=8

    I also tried to use the automagic_rotation script (of Red_Lion) to do nothing but turn off the touch when the screen is folded down; it didn't detect the screen having rotated.

    Hi Pietro,

    Thank you for linking to your take on automagic rotation and updated wiki for the TX2500 on Karmic (and embedded link to the one for Jaunty). I'll link to it on the HOW TO.


    Hi dranorter,

    Did you run the ati config command in Appendix 1 on the HOW TO?

    Since you are using Intrepid did you compile hp-wmi.ko like the Auto-magic Rotation HOW TO shows? Did you check that it and wmi are loading with lsmod?
