Good deal! So the aticonfig fixed it.
I think that's the best rotation functionality a straight "fglrx" has managed. So Catalyst 9.6 seems to be an advance, rotation-wise.
OK, I used Tom's deb package, wrote the script into ~/Desktop/.rotate.sh, made that executable, assigned the "Rotate Screen" key the command, and it works! :)
Only I lose calibration when it switches to the right. :confused:
I've added the -t to the wacomrotate in my startup apps, rebooted, and no change. I've added -f -t to it, and no change.
Any other place I should look?
You don't need the -f and the -t, that was for an older version of the rotation daemon.
What do you mean you lose calibration? You have Intel graphics,correct?
Are you using Compiz?Code:
lspci | grep VGA
I'm fairly certain I am, how do I tell? Yes, I have Intel graphics, though that command you gave me didn't do anything.
I guess I shouldn't say I'm losing calibration; rather, the touchscreen isn't rotating with the display. The display thinks it's turned 90 degrees, but the input has not. Again, I used Method 3
Hmmm, it should give your video card.
OK, that's different. That means the xsetwacom commands aren't applying to stylus, eraser and touch. Sounds like the daemon didn't start up with reboot. Step 9) is still written for Intrepid or earlier. So like in Section 3 in the Kernel Driver HOW TO and the method it recommends for Jaunty I guess it would be:
In Jaunty go to System->Preferences->Startup Applications and click on add and for the command write
"/usr/bin/wacomrotate" (without the quotes).
I would have thought just "wacomrotate" would work since it's in "/usr/bin". Let me know if it works and I'll change the HOW TO.
Well, hell if I know what just happened! I restarted a few more times, and suddenly my button mapping was gone. Went back into compiz config, and the button mappings weren't enabled anymore. Enabled them, back, close, and suddenly it all works!
I've restarted twice since, just to make sure it stays working! Bizarre. Also, I never did put in the /usr/bin/" path in the startup. It works just with "wacomrotate".
Good! So for some reason the Compiz key binding didn't kick in the first time. And all you need is "wacomrotate", which is the one part of it that makes sense.
No, the key binding was working (hitting the key DID rotate the screen). It just seems that part of the actual script wasn't working. Oh well, for whatever reason it works now. I'm not going to overthink it!
Now for the challenge of getting the fingerprint reader to work correctly! Does this ever stop?
