Using Linux on a convertible laptop with Multitouch-TouchScreen: Thinkpad x200 tablet

I have a Thinkpad x200 tablet, and I tried to install Linux on it. Fedora 12 and KUbuntu 10.4 Beta worked good, but tablet functions are still an issue:

what worked:
-Using Pen, Finger to direct the mouse pointer

what didn't work:
-Everytime I rotated my display(changed with krandr), the mouse pointer pointed somewhere else whenever I tried to use the pen or finger, or even the mouse [This should be easy to fix, because the coordinates are just somehow rotated wrong(pointing to the left bottom corner is represented to right bottom corner, if screen is rotated counterclockwise 90)]

-Multitouch didn't work out of the box, or let's say I didn't have a application which is known to support multitouch, so I couldn't try.


tablet, thinkpad
