Fedora 12 rocks on tablets

Filed under

Got a tablet, or want to get one, but not sure it’s going to work out in Linux? Here’s how my Thinkpad x61’s built-in Wacom tablet works in Fedora 12 Beta:

* Tablet pressure sensitivity out-of-the-box, no xorg.conf needed! (Well okay, so that’s been the case for a couple Fedora releases now Wink )

* Cellwriter provides handwriting recognition text input (no more having to flip the tablet back to keyboard mode just for one stupid little thing.)

Rest Here

Rocks are dangerous

Don't put Fedora rocks on your tablet. They will crack your screen. For real! Big Grin

In fact, our SRT was the basis for the security team that Mandrakesoft started back in the day. In 1999, I started working for Mandrakesoft, primarily as a packager/maintainer. The offer came, I suspect, because of the amount of time I spent volunteering to maintain packages in the distribution. I also was writing articles for TechRepublic at the time, so I also ended up being responsible for some areas of documentation, contributing to the manual we shipped with every boxed set we sold (remember when you bought these things off the shelf?).
