Well, I upgraded to Karmic successfully...almost!
I did a clean install, and have followed the instructions for getting wacom driver installed. Stylus, touch, all works good.
However, I'm having some troubles with rotation. I downloaded the automagick rotation file and installed it. I think it would work properly if the ATI driver would cooperate. When I rotate the screen to portrait mode, I get a bunch of hash.
I tried running:
But the response is:
sudo aticonfig --set-pcs-str="DDX,EnableRandr12,TRUE"
My xorg.conf looks like:
docaltmed@laptop:~$ sudo aticonfig --set-pcs-str="DDX,EnableRandr12,TRUE"
No layout section was found in the file: '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'.
Please run 'aticonfig --initial' first or modify your configurationfile manually and run aticonfig again.
aticonfig: parsing the command-line failed.
docaltmed@laptop:~$ sudo aticonfig --initial
Found fglrx primary device section
Unable to find any supported Screen sections
Which makes sense, I guess, as using xorg.conf is being supplanted by something else these days, insofar as I understand it.
Identifier "Default Screen"
Identifier "Default Device"
I'm a bit reluctant to mess about with xorg.conf without having a clue (having been down that path before!). Any suggestions?
EDIT: I'm using the latest version of Catalyst, installed from the ATI website.
