OK, that's sounding like there is a hang. Did you install CellWriter? If you didn't that might be it.
If you did maybe you could try Magick 1.0. You might have better luck with it. It's now hosted on Launchpad: https://launchpad.net/magick-rotation

I've got Magic Rotation working as well as keybinding for a rotation-script for the "Q"-key on the screen.
I would like to have the possibility to rotate the screen into portrait-mode while in tablet-mode. I have setup Magic Rotation to show the screen inverted (180 degrees).
Can I make the "Q"-key "overwrite" the Magic Rotation script while in tablet mode or should I just put an icon on the desktop that activates the other rotation script?
EDIT: Well for now I have just put an icon on the desktop that rotates the screen as I want. But I would still like to know if it is possible to make one of the screen-key work while in tablet-mode?!?

You should be able to do that. On earlier versions of Magick when I was in Intrepid I still had a rotation script on the "Q" key. And it worked. Magick isn't like wacomrotate, it requires a signal from the hinge switch to rotate. So while you're in tablet there is no signal and Magick won't do anything to interfere with another rotation script.
I noticed when I updated from Intrepid to Karmic I lost the keybinding to the "Q" key. It's back to making the music player pop up. I didn't bother to change it back to the rotation script because by then I was comfortable with Magick. The discouraging thing is I lost the DVD key. It no longer makes a event in xev. So I'm down to 1/4 tablet keys. Another reason I didn't change the key binding.
I guess the DSDT for the TX2000 regressed. Since you can no longer manually modify it (they removed the kernel support for that) I guess I'm stuck. Ticks me off because they said they were removing the manual support because they were so good at taking in submitted DSDT's and adding them into the hardware support. And I submitted the TX2000 DSDT to the DSDT site. Only upshot is they broke another tablet key. Super!
I thought it was like when the screen is in normal position the hinge switch is off, but when the computer is in tabletmode (the screen ontop of the keyboard) the switch is on, and therefore the "Q" key is disabled?!?Magick isn't like wacomrotate, it requires a signal from the hinge switch to rotate. So while you're in tablet there is no signal and Magick won't do anything to interfere with another rotation script.
My "Q" key doesn't work when the laptop is in tabletmode and xev doesn't show anything.
I don't think my DVD key never worked, but the Q key always started Rhythmbox - it doesn't anymore!The discouraging thing is I lost the DVD key. It no longer makes a event in xev. So I'm down to 1/4 tablet keys. Another reason I didn't change the key binding.
Sorry to ask, but what does DSDT mean?I guess the DSDT for the TX2000 regressed.
Well it's not a big catastrophe that I can't make the Q key rotate the desktop while in tabletmode - the possibility would be nice though. After all I have a rotate-script assigned to an icon in the taskbar, so it's not that I can't rotate the screen at all i tabletmode.
Yes.Also in tabletmode?
No, that is a bug not Magick. We found the fix for that a long time ago but I've forgotten it. Not even sure I could track it down.but when the computer is in tabletmode (the screen ontop of the keyboard) the switch is on, and therefore the "Q" key is disabled?!?
You often had to use gali98's key code fix in the key code addendom at the bottom of the HOW TO. I haven't tried it in Karmic. Worried about breaking something.I don't think my DVD key never worked
Differentiated System Description Table, see: http://acpi.sourceforge.net/dsdt/index.php It's basically a component of the BIOS ACPI chain.what does DSDT mean?

I don't think I got the "file does not exist" message in Ubuntu 9.10, but it worked anyway.Code:martin@martin-laptop:~$ sudo update-rc.d -f hotkey-setup remove [sudo] password for martin: Removing any system startup links for /etc/init.d/hotkey-setup ... martin@martin-laptop:~$ sudo update-rc.d hotkey-setup start 99 1 2 3 4 5 6 . update-rc.d: /etc/init.d/hotkey-setup: file does not exist
Really?!! You got the DVD key working again in Maverick? Awesome!
