This report describes the installation and customization of Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04) on a Thinkpad X60 (6363) Tablet.

Installing without CD-Rom

I considered going the simple way and created a bootable usbstick with UNetbootin. Choose Ubuntu "live" (9.04) and all the required data is downloaded automagically and a proper stick is built.


What works out-of-the-box

  • Suspend to disk
  • Suspend to RAM
  • Atheros Wifi (madwifi)
  • Fn Hotkeys
  • Intel video driver: fancy 3D compositing is enabled
  • Bluetooth
  • Ethernet
  • Wacom stylus input

What does not work out-of-the-box

Automatic screen rotation on swivel

Check out and build this repository:

 bzr branch lp:~karl.hegbloom/tabuntu/tablet-screen-rotation-support
 cd tablet-screen-rotation-support
 dpkg-buildpackage 
 cd ..
 sudo dpkg -i tablet-screen-rotation-support_0.1.8_i386.deb


Edit sudoers file...

 visudo 

... add this line..

 %video ALL=NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/setkeycodes

... and add your user to the 'video' group.

 sudo adduser $USER video
