ScreenRotator+

Small applet assembles screen rotator and other useful switches for the tablet mode of Ubuntu/Mint Linux. It is an enhancement of the project https://github.com/frecel/ScreenRotator, modified and tested on Thinkpad X1 Yoga with Linux Mint 18.2 (kernel 4.10.0-38), Cinnamon 64-Bit. It should work for other laptops with the Wacom screen and pen.

Note: The screen rotating function is incompatible with the kernel 4.13.0-16.

ScreenRotator requires python3-gi to work. You can install it by running:

sudo apt install python3-gi

Screen brightness adjustment relies on xbacklight. You can install it by running:

sudo apt install xbacklight

Switches of Trackpoint or TouchScreen will not appear if your laptop do not have corresponding devices.
