#5 Wacom tablets rotated incorrectly

general (5)

In portrait orientation, stylus, eraser and touch don't work correctly with the standard rotate-wacom.sh script. The input coordinates seem to be mirrored with respect to the screen center. I have a Fujitsu Lifebook t730.
Two simply exchanging the numbers for the 'r' and 'l' orientation in the script solves this problem for me.

    I am having the same problem. This solution worked for me.

    Spelling it out more clearly in case someone else needs a more explicit instruction:

    cd /usr/lib/fjbtndrv
    sudo cp rotate-wacom.sh rotate-wacom.sh.bak # just in case
    sudo gedit rotate-wacom.sh

    change r*) to l*) and l*) to r*)

    save and quit

    all should be groovy. :)
