So I have an interesting problem. I recently picked up a Toshiba Protege M200 for pretty cheap, thinking I could throw a copy of Linux on and I’d have a nice budget tablet I could use for classes. I loaded it with Ubuntu first, and everything worked except the tablet features–after lots of digging around, I decided to mark it as a failure and try OpenSUSE instead. Activating the tablet turned out to be very easy once I figured out how to do it, but it has a problem with the video driver.
I can’t set the resolution any higher than 800x600, and I know for a fact that it should go higher–it’s fuzzy, and on Ubuntu, I was able to increase the resolution. The odd part is that when I load the failsafe, I -can- bring the resolution up higher. But I can’t figure out what’s different there.
So, can anyone help me out? Once I tackle this, I still need to find a way to get screen rotation to work, but if I can get that far, I won’t have to cave in and put XP Tablet Edition on it. =)
