Reason: please use the first argument of the template to provide a brief explanation. (Discuss in Talk:Dell Inspiron 1090 (Duo)#)

Tablet Mode

The instructions above make the 1090 a fully-working netbook. To take advantage of this hardware, some tablet-related features need to be configured.

(Un)folding detection

When this computer is folded (or unfolded) into a tablet, it sends a keystroke. You can assign the keys Template:Keypress and Template:Keypress to these keystrokes with the following commands, respectively:

setkeycodes e073 148
setkeycodes e074 149
Tip: Add those commands to /etc/rc.local to execute them when booting.

Transparent cursor

Install xcursor-transparent-themeAUR, available in the Arch User Repository.

Hide mouse pointer in Gnome 3.x

Run the following commands as a normal user:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme "xcursor-transparent" &
gconftool-2 --type string  --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/cursor_theme xcursor-transparent &

Hide mouse pointer in GDM

Warning: This will also hide the pointer in all Qt applications (you can only see the arrow pointer, secondary pointers as hand, beam or move will be invisible).

Create/edit the file /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme with the following contents:

[Icon Theme]
Inherits=xcursor-transparent

On-screen keyboard

Generic

Install florenceAUR, available in the Arch User Repository.

Gnome 3.2.x

Install caribou, available in the Official Repositories.

Gesture recognition

Install easystroke-mtAUR, available in the Arch User Repository. It has multitouch support.

Note: easystrokeAUR (also available in the Arch User Repository does not work properly with multitouch. When the screen is touched with two fingers it is interpreted at a gesture given by the line defined between the two points of contact.

Screen rotation

The screen can be rotated with xrandr, but the coordinates of the touchscreen are not rotated accordingly. You can fix this with xinput by running the following commands:

Warning: This commmands depend on the output of xinput --list, which may change on driver updates for the touchscreen.
xrandr -o left
xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 1
xrandr -o right
xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 1 0
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 1 0
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 1 0
xrandr -o inverted
xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 1 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
xrandr -o normal
xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0

Observe that the transformation matrix is the same for normal and inverted orientations, and for left and right orientations. Therefor the corresponding commands need to be applied only when changing between orientations with different transformation matrix.

Examples of use

Script for rotating the screen

The commands above can be used to make a simple shell script for toggling the screen orientation between landscape and portrait as follows, see also #Screen rotation:

~/toggle_orientation.sh
#!/bin/bash

rotation="$(xrandr -q --verbose | grep 'connected' | egrep -o  '\) (normal|left|inverted|right) \(' | egrep -o '(normal|left|inverted|right)')"

if [ $rotation = "normal" ] ;
then
    xrandr -o left
    xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 1
else
    xrandr -o normal
    xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0

Tip: For an improved user experience you can:

Script for toggling tablet mode ON and OFF (Gnome 3.x)

The following shell script hides the mouse pointer and activates Gnome 3.x's on-screen keyboard, caribou, when the netbook is fold into a tablet. It detects the current mode based on the current cursor theme (if the cursor is hidden, then the computer is in tablet mode). When you unfold the computer, it returns the screen to the default orientation.

Note: It assumes xcursor-transparent-themeAUR and caribou are installed, see #Transparent cursor and #On-screen keyboard; and that Adwaita, Gnome 3.x's default cursor theme is in use. See also #Screen rotation.
~/toggle_tabletmode.sh
#!/bin/bash

if [ $(echo $(gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme) | cut -c2- | sed 's/\(.*\)./\1/') = "xcursor-transparent" ] ;
then
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme "Adwaita" &
    gconftool-2 --type string  --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/cursor_theme Adwaita &
    dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/a11y/applications/screen-keyboard-enabled false &
    xrandr -o normal
    xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Multi" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Coordinate Transformation Matrix' 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1
    xinput set-prop "eGalaxTouch Virtual Device for Single" 'Evdev Axis Inversion' 0 0
else
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme "xcursor-transparent" &
    gconftool-2 --type string  --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/mouse/cursor_theme xcursor-transparent &
    dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/a11y/applications/screen-keyboard-enabled true &
fi
exit 0
Tip: You can run this script when (un)folding the netbook associating it to the keys Template:Keypress and Template:Keypress, see #(Un)folding detection.
