HP Spectre x360 laptops have a hinge screen that can turn 360 degrees. It can be folded to imitate a tablet, for example. When you do fold it, Ubuntu enters its tablet mode — keyboard and touch-pad will be disabled.
I want to stop that. I’d like to keep keyboard and touch-pad on so that I could connect to an external display and still be able to use them. I’ve done some googling and found a few solutions:
On Windows, you can do this by disabling the Inter(R) Integrated Sensor Solution driver. I have Windows installed parallel to Ubuntu, so I tried doing that. It helped solve the problem while I’m in Windows, however, when I go back to Ubuntu, the problem remains.
On Ubuntu, people generally recommend using the
xinput command to control input devices (e.g. inable/disable them). But it doesn’t seem to reflect the real state of affairs… For example, right now I’m typing this using an external keyboard and mouse; embedded keyboard and touch-pad are de-facto disabled — I cannot use them — as the screen is folded and tablet mode active. Yet, if I run
xinput and check the
props of my touch-pad, it reports it as being enabled.
Here are some pictures of
xinput betraying me… 🙂 As you can see on the second screenshot it says
Device Enabled (154): 1 which is a plain lie. Trying to run
xinput --enable 18 anyways gives nothing — touch-pad stays disabled.
xinput –list-props 18
acpi_listen seems to catch that moment of folding the screen. It prints
video/tabletmode TBLT 0000008A 00000000 every time I do that. Although I am not sure as to how to use that to resolve the issue.
It seems like the problem is deeper, at the hardware level, but I’m not an expert yet, so I’m asking for help. How can I prevent keyboard and touch-pad from being disabled?
Trying to apply settings to the Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 on startup which so far works ok (https://askubuntu.com/a/1140099/977029) but one option I can’t seem to find is the Display mode, not the tracking e.g. absolute / relative but where the choice is for Mirror / Tablet etc.
I have 2 design approach for a specific module 1 is for mobile and 1 is for tablet. The goal of this is for analyzation of the historical dates of the financial data.
A. Mobile phone design – Straight forward horizontal bar chart to differentiate each data from the previous periods.
B. Tablet Design – This is to increase users interactions by providing more relevant information for analysis to filter the data and period based on their preferences.
Does it make sense from the users perspective do have different designs from the different screen? Does it not affect the learnability and familiarity on the app?
I have turned on the simulated right click in the system settings. When I use an external mouse, holding the left mouse button triggers a right click as expected. However, doing so with the finger on the touchscreen of the tablet doesn’t. Surprisingly though, it works in the file browser but nowhere else.

So I got my Samsung tablet sm-t350 2-3 years ago and I forgot my password for it and also I got a new email so I don’t remember the one password to the email associated with my tablet. What do I do?
I tried to do factory reset on my Lenovo Yoga tablet but I turned it off while it was erasing. After that when I start the tablet it automaticly shows lenovo logo(as it should) but then it starts erasing data for like a minute, reboots itself and starts again. I’m able to access recovery menu and move the selection so its not bricked. Will I have to reinstall the Android?
I had bought a USB-OTG cable for the sole purpose of connecting my Huion H420 Drawing Tablet. When I connected it, it recognized it as a mouse, but no cursor showed up when I hovered my pen over, and if I clicked, it would only click the middle of the screen. I know Wacom Tablets work, because I saw a question on here that had it work for a Wacom tablet. Maybe its not compatible with the Huion H420, or is there any workaround?
