ok, first of all i want to thank you for all this information.
I have bought a tablet a month ago, that is provided with ubuntu linux and the touchscreen is an MosArt. On the ENAC site that you proposed me, something that i had found too time ago, in the list of supported devices, it seems that it is supported with the 2.6.40 driver. As i’m using the 2.6.38 kernel and there is a patch for it, i could try to compile the kernel (even though i have never did it before), but by reading a bit of documentation nothing is impossible.
Now, though, i must come to the point.
On that tablet there is an accelerometer either, which i haven’t been able to get it working yet. That’s a big problem for me, because as i rotate the screen, it becomes black and the only solution is a hard reset. So even though i’d like to get the multitouch working, until with a little movement the screen becomes black, the multitouch is a bit useless. The good thing is that openSUSE recognise the single touch natively.
So, i know that i should open a new thread to ask this but i’d like to post the question here just to know if any of you have heard anything about accelerometer on openSUSE but even because most tablet will have accelerometers on and i haven’t been able to recover information from google yet.
I have 2 files that the company where i bought the device gave me, to have the accelerometer working under ubuntu. I’d like to ask if they could be ported as to work under openSUSE. I think it’s a permission thing but don’t know much about this.
The 2 files are called, orient (which is an executable) and touchrotate.
The procedure for ubuntu to have it working is:
put the touchrotate in /usr/bin
and the orient in /usr/sbin
after that they told me that i hade to edit the /etc/rc.local by inserting the following line
echo disable > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe11
after that to edit sudoers in /etc/sudoers
and in the end to insert in the autostart applications the orient program in super user mode, like: sudo orient.
I would like your opinion as if this could work under openSUSE, so i could have no black screens and continue with configuring the multitouch.
I’d appreciate an opinion/suggestion and in case i would open another thread.
Below you can find the touchrotate file and download the orient file:
