ThinkWiki does not know about my Thinkpad X220-tablet
 
I own a Thinkpad so I went to ThinkWiki looking for information. WHAT?!? I don't find any information about my laptop model anywhere on ThinkWiki. I know that ThinkWiki is all volunteer etc, but zero information about an existing product?

I have the X220-tablet and find details for the X61-tablet, X200-tablet, and X201-tablet ... even the antique X41-tablet. Why zilch about the X220-tablet?

Sniff Sob,

Do you have a specific question in regards to your X220 or is this just a rant?

(blush) I did not write my posting as a rant, but as you point out that was the result. Thank you keeping me honest.

I finally got screen rotation working, but cannot discover how to get the "tablet" orientation screen size and shape and windows properly sized after a shift.

Neither suspend-to-RAM (sleep) nor suspend-to-disk (hibernate) work properly.

There are buttons and feature keys that work perfectly well under win-doze (so there is a hardware connection to software) but I cannot get any utility to report keypress or button events to linux. NOTE -- The ROTATE button is one I can't get to show up.

I'm running Mint-12 (Ubuntu 11.10) with any updates offered by the update managers.

Thanks in advance,
