    you need to reinstall ... after installing lucid over win7 my laptop hasn't even gotten remotely warm much less hot. that or you have hardware failure (thermal paste burned up so the heat pipe isn't transferring heat away from the cpu)

    Hi sacredpotato,

    I installed the drivers from the hardware popup on the first boot and have not edited my xorg at all.
    OK, sounds like you have the proprietary ATI drivers through Hardware Drivers.
    When I run the rotation applet the screen visually rotAtes 180 but the touch input doesn't.
    Once again you've lost me. Are you saying the stylus rotates but not touch?

    Did you run the command I gave you in a terminal? It enables the proprietary ATI driver to handle rotation. Sounds like you did because the screen is rotating. Just curious.

    I did not run the command I used the script method in post 2 to set up the touch. I have single touch. the video rotates perfectly without that comamnd but the touch/stylus do not rotate when useing the auto magic rotate applet (even the new beta one for lucid) from what I can figure out the xsetwacom set (device name) rotate HALF command throws an error about rotate. this leads me to believe that something is wrong with my wacom-tools.it's strange that the display woulod rotate without that ati command in term I can run it if you think it will help anything.


    Edit:
    also just so you know I installed ubuntu 10.04 64 bit then installed the netbook remix and that is what I load into when I log in. Could that be part of my problem?

    Re: HOW TO: Set up the HP TX2z and Dell XT & XT2 (N-trig digitizer) in Ubuntu

    I'm experiencing the same problem. xsetwacom does not disable the touch portion (xsetwacom set touch touch off) nor does it rotate the touch/stylus portion (xsetwacom set touch rotate half). I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong. I follow the Lucid instructions step by step. These issues didn't exist in Karmic -- but I need the other updated stuff with Lucid (better monitor support, etc) or I'd still use Karmic. Sigh... It always seems to be a trade off. Good pen/touch support - lousy multi-monitor support or good monitor support and lousy pen/touch support...

    at least I'm not the only one ... I think there is something wrong with the instructions for lucid. something that is needed to do in the previous versions of ubuntu that messes up xsetwacom in lucid. well now that there are two of us we can maybe get to some troubleshooting and nail this sucker down. ^_^

    Sounds good. Not sure how helpful I'll be. But it is very strange. Everything shows up 'properly'. xsetwacom list shows stylus STYLUS and touch TOUCH but neither of them accepts any commands from xsetwacom.

    @scaredpotato and markginter24 -
    Can you post the results of:
    Code:
    xsetwacom -v list
    xinput --list
    I want to make sure that the devices line up correctly and possibly try setting up the devices through xorg.conf where we can rename the devices (to prevent duplicate names).

    Ok. Does the normal xsetwacom (without the -v) show any devices? From here, it does not look like it found anything. Normally, it would show something:
    Code:
    ... Display is '(null)'.
    ... 'list' requested.
    ... Found device 'Virtual core XTEST pointer' (4).
    ... Found device 'Virtual core XTEST keyboard' (5).
    ... Found device 'Power Button' (6).
    ... Found device 'Video Bus' (7).
    ... Found device 'Power Button' (8).
    ... Found device 'Sleep Button' (9).
    ... Found device 'HP Webcam' (10).
    ... Found device 'N-Trig MultiTouch' (11).
    ... Found device 'N-Trig Touchscreen' (12).
    ... Found device 'N-Trig Pen eraser' (13).
    N-Trig Pen eraser ERASER    
    ... Found device 'N-Trig Pen' (14).
    N-Trig Pen       STYLUS    
    ... Found device 'AT Translated Set 2 keyboard' (15).
    ... Found device 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad' (16).
    ... Found device 'HP WMI hotkeys' (17).
    Can you do me a favor and install input-utils:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install input-utils
    and then run the following command and post your output:
    Code:
    sudo lsinput
    That will help us see what driver is using the device.
