Good to see others with Gentoo on the X60T.

Re: Pen not working with particular kernels (known to be affected suspend2-sources-2.6.22-r2, gentoo-sources-2.6.22-r5)

For me I got the error:

Cannot set serial info: Invalid argument

this is a bug with the way the kernel handles serial ports, I believe it may be fixed in later 2.6.22 releases but haven't had the opportunity to test yet.

I also have aiglx working lovely also, worked pretty much out the box with a few tweaks on top of the Gentoo xeffects wiki (which I think is slightly out of date in some places)

Does anybody know of any particular power management tips? I have frequency scaling working, but battery life is much reduced than when running windows (plus my thinkpad gets rather warm on the right palm rest, which it doesn't do in windows)

Hey, I have a weird problem with my stylus: Your rotate script works fine, and even the cursors directions are rotated with xsetwacom. But it seems that the cursor still uses the old specs of the display, it's not shown on the actual position i move the pen. So, if i rotate left 90 degrees, the resolution is 768x1024, but the stylus behaves relative to 1024x768. Do you know the problem? I tried different versions of linuxwacom (up to latest development) but can't get it working. :(
