Installing Ubuntu on a ThinkPad X60 Tablet
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
- Wacom stylus input
What does not work out-of-the-box
Automatic screen rotation on swivel
