    Re: Natty Narwhal on Lenovo ThinkPad X220T

    Running xrotate in terminal rotates the screen. I repeatedly run it to see the screen make one full rotation.
    Code:
    @x220t:~/Desktop/magick-rotation$ ./xrotate.py 
    going: inverted
    xinput set-prop 16 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' -0.562225475842 -0.0 1 0.0 -1.0 1 0.0 0.0 1.0
    inverted:  [-0.5622254758418741, -0.0, 1, 0.0, -1.0, 1, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0]
    @x220t:~/Desktop/magick-rotation$ ./xrotate.py 
    going: right
    xinput set-prop 16 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0.0 1.0 0.0 -0.562225475842 0.0 1 0.0 0.0 1.0
    right:  [0.0, 1.0, 0.0, -0.5622254758418741, 0.0, 1, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0]
    @x220t:~/Desktop/magick-rotation$ ./xrotate.py 
    going: normal
    xinput set-prop 16 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0.562225475842 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0
    normal:  [0.5622254758418741, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0]

    Good. That means that it is now working. The next part is to see if the /dev/input/lenovo-acpi file is there. Can you check and see if it is there?

    No that file is not there.

    Check in /etc/udev/rules.d/ for a file called 62-magick.rules. Is it there?

    No. That folder has only 4 files.

    10-vboxdrv.rules
    70-persistent-cd.rules
    70-persistent-net.rules
    README

    Ah, then that is likely the remaining problem.

    Create the file with:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/62-magick.rules
    Copy and paste the entire contents of the attached file into it. Save and reboot.

    You should now have the /dev/input/lenovo-acpi file and rotation should work. Let me know.

    That did it!! Thanks.
    Phew! now that the rotation works, I would like to get more tablet functionality in.

    How do you guys get a software keyboard? When one clicks in a place like a browser address bar, how can one have a keyboard pop up or one that can be slid into the screen from the side (like the original win7 app had in x220t)?

    Great! Nice job handling that double whammy.

    Say, can you check in the magick-rotation folder and see if the file 62-magick.rules is there and has the contents? I'm wondering if the installer_gtk.py not installing it for you is a onetime deal or is there an intermittent bug? I guess we'll have to see if it happens to others.

    Magick is designed to work with CellWriter so that CellWriter shows in tablet mode and hides in laptop. You can use another on screen keyboard if you want. But since CellWriter has both the keyboard and the letter recognition it seems like the best choice. You should be able to install it through the Software Center.

    Yes the 62-magik.rules is there in hte magik-rotation folder. It has the contents:
    Code:
    # udev rules for tablet pc's using an OEM-WMI or OEM-ACPI
    #
    # These rules were compiled for the Ubuntu/Debian GNU/Linux distribution, but others may,
    # and indeed are encouraged to, use them also.
    #
    # Should you do so, PLEASE CO-ORDINATE ANY CHANGES OR ADDITIONS to 62-magick.rules with
    # Jayhawk so that we can try to present users with a standard set of device nodes which
    # they can rely on across the board.
    
    KERNEL!="event[0-9]*", GOTO="oem-wmi_end"
    
    # The symlinks constructed by the following rules are used in Magick Rotation's oem_wmi.py.
    ATTRS{name}=="HP WMI hotkeys", SUBSYSTEM=="input", MODE="644" SYMLINK+="input/hp-wmi"
    ATTRS{name}=="Dell WMI hotkeys", SUBSYSTEM=="input", MODE="644" SYMLINK+="input/dell-wmi"
    ATTRS{name}=="ThinkPad Extra Buttons", SUBSYSTEM=="input", MODE="644" SYMLINK+="input/lenovo-acpi"
    
    LABEL="oem-wmi_end"

    Re: Natty Narwhal on Lenovo ThinkPad X220T

    I am using cellwriter now. I would like to have its keyboard bigger. Is there such an option?
    The tablet is very much usable now, thanks to you helpful folks. I'm loving the two finger scroll from the touchpad though. So much better than having to find the edge to scroll. The scrolling is smooth as well. Ubuntu as always is fast up on its feet and quick to shut down. Suspend on lid close/open works great as well.
    Now if only we can swipe-to-scroll and pinch to zoom. Do we have anything to look forward to in 11.10 in terms of tablet-features?
