This is not necessarily something that we support, but seeing as I have an HP TouchSmart tm2t, I figured that I would post some of the experiences I have had here and some of the fixes that work.
I have a tm2t-1100 CTO, at least I think that's what HP's site defines mine as:
- CPU: Intel Core i5-430UM
- RAM: 4096 MB
- HDD: Hitachi HTS725050A9A364 500GB
- VGA1: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
- VGA2: ATI Mobility HD5450
If I neglected something that you feel is important, please post on the discussion page.
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) x64 on the 2.6.38-8-generic Linux kernel.
We use a rotation script, which I will post here shortly, that involves the use of xrandr. Combined with a couple of other commands (I disable my touchpad and touch on the screen), I have gotten almost all tablet functionality!Use tail -f on your /var/log/syslog and turn your tablet around. You should notice the following:
Jul 3 18:31:28 <computername> kernel: [ 1521.236657] atkbd serio0: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xd8 on isa0060/serio0). Jul 3 18:31:28 <computername> kernel: [ 1521.236665] atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e058 <keycode>' to make it known.
Do not use the 64-bit flash, no matter what version of the OS you are running. Instead, use the 32-bit version that you can download either from Synaptic (through the flashplugin-installer). If you experience slow performance with flash videos, right click on it, go to "Settings..." and disable hardware acceleration. This appears to be an error where it slows down because it's trying to use the Intel Integrated Graphics and failing.
