What about Nexus 7? Ubuntu works on that--Xan (talk) 15:50, 5 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Instead of document what works, now the page should just document what does not work and is there any solution. --Fengchao (talk) 01:34, 7 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Stylus and screen rotation

All currently listed ways on how to rotate your touchscreen/stylus do first rotate the screen and then in separate steps rotate the touchscreen/stylus accordingly.

I think the solution from Touchscreen#Using a touchscreen in a multi-head setup is cleaner:

One "maps" the touchscreen/stylus device to the correct screen (e.g. on startup). And then if the screen is rotated (e.g. on KDE Plasma in the normal Display Configuration) the touchscreen/stylus will rotates as well!

Here is an example working for my Lenovo Yoga Thinkpad convertible with touch and stylus:

cat << EOF >> ~/.xinitrc

# Map touchscreen and pen to correct screen
xinput --map-to-output 'Wacom Pen and multitouch sensor Finger touch' eDP1
xinput --map-to-output 'Wacom Pen and multitouch sensor Pen stylus' eDP1
xinput --map-to-output 'Wacom Pen and multitouch sensor Pen eraser' eDP1

Edit: I just realized, I have to execute the above 3 xinput lines each time I rotate the eDP1 screen. But what do you think, shall we mention this as a method in the Tablet article as well?
