you have posted in the wrong thread. you need to start a thread of your own in a suitable forum (e.g. Linux - Newbie) if you'd read any of this thread, you should have seen it is for submitting erquests for doumemntation to be written for our "LinuxAnswers" subsite, not general help requests.

Tablet Help please ( post #1)

I initially posted the following on the Hardware forum but got no response -- I then got no response on general but I feel sure I cannot be the only person who would like to experiment on a Tablet.
Therefore I feel that a guide to tell Linux users the current state of developments for Tablet support would be welcome.

I was certainly hoping to receive some help and encouragement to get Linux working on this Tablet but as it is an operational machine I do not want to start until I feel there is a reasonable prospect of getting somewhere.

Whilst the question relates to the generality of Tablet issues someone writing a guide might want to know some specifics.
The actual model I own is a GoBook sold also by HP as a Tr3000.

This would involve installing Linux on a keyboardless system upon which a virtual keyboard would ideally be the first item to appear on the display and with simultaneous activation of the Tablet pen interface functions as virtual keyboard and mouse.

Information on this particular Tablet can be found at the itronix website (look under GoBook (model 300)).
For those not familiar with Tablets this means I need to:
1. Be able to activate and use the pressure sensitive touchscreen (wacom) as:
(a) mouse
(b) virtual keyboard
2. Use both 1a & 1b for installation, boot & login.
3. It would be practicle to use an external usb keyboard for initial installation but operational conditions preclude the use of a physical keyboard in normal use.
4. This means the virtual keyboard has to replace all the functions of a physical keyboard.
5. I could post an image of the virtual keyboard which MS$ use for XP tablet edition.
6. Most tablets also have rotation support for both portrait and landscape operations.
7. The Wacom serial Tablet pen is managed via an Intel(R) 82801CAM LPC Interface Controller.
8. Intel(R) 82801CAM LPC Interface Controller - 248C also provides the hardware for the rotate driver.
9. The mouse device also operates via the Tablet pen using the pressure sensitive screen and a click device on the pen for left and right click operations.
10. This rugged tablet is equipped with integral wireless lan, usb 2, lan & blue tooth. It is sealed against the elements and I can operate it on deck in foul weather for navigation.
11. My primary purpose is using this unit at sea for navigation, logging, interfacing with radiocommunication devices, and for control purposes.

I am sure I am not the only one who would love to be able to move Tablet computers away from absolute dependence on MS$

Message to : Jeremy or other MOD..

I submitted my tutorial about FIND COMMAND with EXAMPLES yesterday at LQ answers.

But there were two messages flashed after submitting.
1. Page requested is not avail or found.
2. Your linux answer has been submitted.

Is it normal ?

A HOWTO For New Kernel Additions and Compiling!!!

Ive done a google search and come up with 3 different sets of OLD instructions as well as a forth someone has added on my post, and they are as follows:





Each one of these instructions has different stuff than another, or adds something or has taken something away.
I'd like to see a UPTODATE readable, understandable walkthrough with explainations of what each command does and if its necessary, as well as things pointed out that may be distro specific. I would love you forever.

i know this thread is old but i'll post anyways. there are so many how to's online it is unbelievable. and they are all basically the same just outdated. is it possible to create how to's that are up to date but also could be applied to any distro or atleast a few distro's? mainly just basic things such as printer set-up local and network. raid arrays ide/sata, samba and it's home user uses and set-up. i guess i'm basically just talking about up to date how to's related to the most common newbie questions and a list of commands with brief explanations. i realize that's asking alot but i found several how to's on installing java but the version mentioned was outdated and one had instructions that balked this newbie. so it took me several hours to figure it out. i'm thankful for the lesson but still, i hope you get my point.

good point. too many outdated forums and howtos and too many of them with no date mentioned anywhere. would like to find a good one on how udev works and how to write rules for it, having a lot of trouble just to mount an ntfs disk (read only) and have a usb dongle that doesnt give the correct info to load its driver (kvaser canbus interface btw, give them a plug as they write linux drivers for there products)

Low latency alsa howto?

Am plaughed (sic) with grotesque alsa latency problems - sound happening long after the event that triggered it. It appears the way round this is to compile a low latency kernel and use plug. But you tell me. (I must say I'm a bit puzzled for you have to say that alsa isn't really fit for purpose in some ways.)

How is this done - the more simple minded the how to the better; with the actual commands spelt out?

BIOS Flash - howto

I would be nice to have a How To flash your BIOS. These are very technical things and it hard to flash a BIOS through Linux. A howto, with everything explained, all the commands and applications listed.
