    Yes, I did run the aticonfig configuration command "sudo aticonfig --set-pcs-str="DDX,EnableRandr12,TRUE"".

    And, I'd forgotten to do the "sudo make install" somehow; so the automagic script works now, except of course I have the lines which actually do the rotation commented out.

    Favux, thank you for your tireless efforts helping everyone out!

    Hi dranorter,

    Thank you for the thank you!

    OK, are you using Compiz? The current Catalyst almost works with rotation and Compiz but not quite. If so you can use the Compiz off script (attached to the bottom of the HOW TO) or since you're using the automagic rotation script there's one with Compiz off built into it linked in the Auto-magic Rotation HOW TO.

    I am not using Compiz; visual effects are set to 'none' and I ran metacity --replace just to make sure. "xrandr -o inverted" still garbled the screen.

    Hi dranorter,

    Have you tried removing the ATI driver and going with the Xorg radeon driver?

    No, I haven't tried it. I'm not sure I want to do that; would I risk losing touch?

    I don't want to reinstall again just to have rotation at this point. I'm pretty satisfied just with disabling touch in tablet mode.

    Hi dranorter,

    I wouldn't think so. But I understand not wanting to mess with it.

    What I don't understand is why the latest Catalyst/fglrx is messing up on rotation. Is it so new that support for Xserver 1.5 in Intrepid is being lost? That doesn't make sense. So most likely there's a bug affecting rotation.

    What's your xorg.conf look like? You could attach it to your next post.

    My laptop is a tx2-1270us, and on the ATI website I downloaded the driver under Linux x86_64 > Radeon > ATI Radeon HD 3xxx Series (ATI Catalyst 9.12, says it's good for xorg 6.7 thru 7.4, x86 or x86_64).

    xorg attached.

    Hi dranorter,

    OK, it's a hot mess. The TX2z mess that we can probably optimize a little and you have duplicate ATI sections which is probably the problem. This will take me a while. Meanwhile back up your xorg.conf and be prepared to restore the back up from the command line if X breaks. I don't know if I'll be able to figure out which video sections belong to the new Catalyst.

    Edit: Alright, let's see if this helps any.

    Rotation is unaffected (still gets random garble), but touch now moves the mouse without clicking (except in emacs, where I get "<mouse-10> is undefined"). This was fixed by putting the line

    Option "Button10" "1"

    back.

    Stylus right button works now.

    Hi dranorter,

    Progress.

    Thank you! So that's what 'Option "Button10" "1"' is for, an EMACS error! I'll add that back in with a comment.

    Don't know what's wrong. Only other thing I can think of is to try and comment out the line:
    Code:
    	Load	"dri"
    Because the duplicate section (from the new Catalyst?) didn't have it.

    Edit: Say do you have one or two buttons on the stylus?
