View Full Version : [ubuntu] Accelerometer - cool joystick, not protecting my HDD

September 9th, 2011, 04:12 PM
Hello all, :)

My laptop has an accelerometer that it used on windows to stop my HDD and lock the heads when it detected movement.

In Ubuntu, I have an awesome joystick! It is really entertaining to play various tilt-to-move-the-ball games but, I really need this to protect my HDD.

So I would like to ask you if there is a way to make it stop the HDD (even if that means that the ... cool joystick feature will be gone.)

Thanks in advance!
