TabletPC: Support Touchscreen and Wacom devices during installation

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Rejected Information


Tablet PCs are normally produced in two kinds of flavours: Convertibles, which have a keyboard, and Slates, which have none (only pens or touchscreens).

If a user installs a Slate, he has no keyboard and no (pohysical) mouse device, only the touchscreen.

We should on TabletPCs automatically recognize that it is a TabletPC and configure the Wacom or other Touchscreen device where possible. Thus would enhance the usability of the product on TabletPCs.

Stefan, do you see this as work that your team would do, something that needs to be done by the YaST installer, or both?

As long as there is a different way to install it, this appears only like a "nice to have".

There's now really few things to do that for 11.2 : see http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Howto_install_OpenSuSE_on_HP_tx2-xxxx_laptops

Furthermore, for 11.3, it should be mandatory !

To get this support for 11.1 or 11.2, we need to :

- replace hid-ntrig.c from 2.6.31 kernel by the up-to date version : just copy/paste.

- patching linuxwacom : 4 lines to change.

- adding a sax2 profile for these devices in the sax2 cdb file.

(11.1 needs a kernel upgrade to a kernel from HEAD repository before)

Read too fast : my post concern support AFTER installation. Please take care.
