I'll be posting on my blog about my experiences as well. If you have questions or suggestions you can contact me on my talk page here or using the info here.

I currently have an X200 Tablet, running Debian unstable.

Previously, I have owned an X40 and A21m.

This page will have my notes and thoughts as they occur, and so may not be that accurate.

The X200T fingerprint reader is not yet supported by fprint.

The AT&T WWAN card is not appearing in lsusb output, and I've read that there is some regression in the kernel that prevents it from working right now.

The wacom stylus and eraser work just fine. But, xsetwacom list dev shows nothing ( Apparently this is not a bug but part of the transition to new HAL and Xorg. The answer is to use xinput to get the actual name of the stylus device (which is not "stylus" anymore), and then use "xsetwcom set DEVICE rotate cw", for example to rotate the stylus.

Strangely, the card reader did not appear in lsusb output until I inserted an SD card, at which point it appeared and worked fine.


In Debian, building tp-smapi with module-assistant doesn't build the hdaps module by default. I don't know what the proper way to pass an option to module-assistant is so I just edited the Makefile to have it build.

I had to create an /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf file with:

   # enable thinkpad_ec
   options thinkpad_ec force_io=1

Then, install hdapsd, and neverball!

I maybe also had to install xserver-xorg-input-joystick, and turn joystick on in .neverballrc.
