    I need to know which tablet pc you have.

    Is the Synaptic touchpad the mouse you are talking about?

    Sometimes the Syanptic driver can grab the touchscreen, thinking it is a touchpad. That's why I need to know more. Seeing the entire outputs for xinput would help too.

    We may have to look at lshal and Xorg.0.log in /var/log to see what's happening.

    Oops sorry! Its a tx2000z. From looking over the Xorg.0.log it looks like it doesn't like all of my input devices and rejects the touchpad. Any thoughts? Its nice to know what's happening though maybe I'll be able to find a solution on the internets.

    Ok, that was weird. I have a TX2000 also and I haven't ever seen anything like that.

    The Xorg.0.log with hp-wmi says:
    Code:
    (--) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: touchpad found
    (**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: always reports core events
    (EE) Too many input devices. Ignoring SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
    (II) UnloadModule: "synaptics"
    (EE) config/hal: NewInputDeviceRequest failed (11)
    I think you must have multiple wacom.fdi's. Either that or your .fdi is garbled. You don't have Wacom stuff in xorg.conf, do you?

    You should only have one wacom.fdi called 10-linuxwacom.fdi located in /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/. Either use gali98's wacom.fdi linked in Jaunty and Karmic Users near the top of this HOW TO, or the new-generic described in 2b). And you should delete the three lines mentioned.

    Another thing is since you're in Karimic you do not need to compile hp-wmi. It should already be there. You added it to modules in /etc because it wasn't auto-loading, right?

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

    this is for anyone that is testing lucid lynx 10.04. i have a tx2500 with hd3200 and wacom. getting the screen to rotate wasnt any problem with the original instruction although the fglrx driver now supports rotation for the hd3200!!! getting the wacom to rotate was a bit harder. the usual "xsetwacom set stylus rotate CCW" didnt work. i had to replace "stylus" with the device id from "xinput --list" this command. mine showed up as "Wacom ISDv4 93 id-12" so my final command to rotate the wacom was "xsetwacom set 12 rotate CW" and i didnt have to tell it to rotate "ERASER", "STYLUS" and "TOUCH". just the on command does all. here is my rotation script.

    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 left 
        xrandr -o left 
        xsetwacom set 12 rotate CCW 
        ;; 
        left) 
    #    -rotate to inverted 
        xrandr -o inverted 
        xsetwacom set 12 rotate HALF 
        ;; 
        inverted) 
    #    -rotate to the right 
        xrandr -o right 
        xsetwacom set 12 rotate  CW 
    ;; 
        right) 
    #    -rotate to normal 
        xrandr -o normal 
        xsetwacom set 12 rotate NONE 
        ;; 
    esac

    Hi farmercyst,

    Now that's interesting. Peter Hutterer rewrote the xsetwacom commands for xf86-input-wacom but I hadn't thought using the xinput id would work. I thought each device name would have to be used. They really want you to use the name the kernel returns although it seems a little long and clumsy to me.

    Good news on fglrx now supporting rotation. Which version of Catalyst?

    Definitely have to update the HOW TO with some confirmation.

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

    Hey Favux et al,
    It has been a while since I used my HP tx2000 tablet in portrait mode.
    It still rotates fine with magik rotation .3-3 but now the calibration is way off and when I bring up wacomcpl, it shows two stylus and two erasers.
    How do I get ride of the extras?
    thanks

    Hi cgul1,

    At a guess you either have two wacom .fdi's or a .fdi and xorg.conf entries. Any chance of it?

    What release of Ubuntu are you in? Could I see the output of:
    Code:
    xinput --list
    and
    Code:
    xsetwacom list

    Duplicates and non-existent devices. Xsetwacom should show:
    stylus stylus
    eraser eraser
    stylus stylus
    Looks like something wrong with your .fdi at least, if not duplicates. See Section 2b) in the linuxwacom HOW TO.
