The TC 1100 is a slate tablet PC with a 10.2" screen and detachable keyboard.
Since the tablet has no internal cd-rom, booting from USB is the only option for getting into the installation media.
USB CD/DVD Rom
- Plugin a USB CD-Rom drive with installation disk
- Attach keyboard (USB or Dock are fine)
- Boot computer
- While in BIOS post screen, press the "jog-dial" located on the top left edge
- Select "CD-Rom" and press jog-dial again
Installation is the same as with any laptop. I recommend following the Beginners' Guide
For additional tablet related information, please read the [Tablet PC] page.
Nouveau works fine, including the 3D support
Install and setup the following
Suspending and Resuming
resume parameter to the kernel boot command and the
resume hook to
/etc/mkinitcpio.conf, as discussed in the pm-utils article.
Resuming after suspending to disk causes the stylus to cease functioning. No data will be sent by the digitizer until it receives an
ISDV4_SAMPLING command. Unfortunately, the driver only sends that command during initialization. I suppose the correct way to fix this is to modify the driver to recognize when it's resuming from a suspend to disk and send the command accordingly. I didn't want to bother with all of that, naturally, so instead I simply put the following shell script in
#!/bin/sh case "$1" in hibernate|resume|suspend ) ;; thaw ) xset -display :0 q 2>&1 >/dev/null | head -1 | grep -Eqx '(No protocol specified)|' && printf 1 >>/dev/ttyS0 ;; * ) exit $NA ;; esac
Install the xf86-input-wacom package. A reboot may be required for Xorg to recognize the serial digitizer For additional help, see the Wacom page.
I've done a quick and dirty hack of xf86-input-wacom to get the stylus-activated buttons working.
Unpack it, build it using makepkg, and install the resulting package with pacman. The stylus buttons will now generate keycodes when triggered, and these can be bound to actions by either your window manager or xbindkeys. The specific keycodes are as follows:
|Journal Launch||KEY_PROG3 (210)|
|Tablet PC Input Panel Launch||KEY_PROG4 (211)|
Right Hand Buttons
Side buttons work out of the box. Sometimes they do not respond until the unit is put into standby and then resumed
