In this episode, Cori talks about his adventures with Linux on tablet notebooks. What worked, what didn’t, and the cool piece of software he wrote to improve the screen rotation function.

 
 

Hey gang!

I know I was really, really drawing blanks today on the podcast, so here’s the websites I meant to have available:
First and foremost, my GTK+ tray screen rotation utility (please note that this version only works with WACOM inputs):
http://tablettray.sourceforge.net/

Second, the ‘maintained’ version:
https://launchpad.net/~csm-ticc/+archive/tablettray

Some useful utilities that make the experience more tablet-like:
Xournal – http://xournal.sourceforge.net/ (packages should be available for your distro, check first)
Cellwriter - http://risujin.org/cellwriter/ (handwriting input, disable compiz to use)

And lastly:
http://xkcd.com/619/

Also, I did suffer through running gentoo on my tablet, the trials and tribulations plus some nice hints can be found on my blog:
