  1. Auto Rotation

    I've begun porting the Linux Fujitsu buttons driver for Fujitsu convertibles. The buttons part isn't finished (because I'm writing a user space daemon so they can be changed on the fly). But auto rotation is implemented for Fujitsu T-series. This code could also be used with some tweaks to auto rotate other devices. I.e. Read the state of an accelerometer then execute the code for rotating the framebuffer. So if you have the hardware feel free to fork my code for your device just be sure to share! https://github.com/Yaaran/FJTabletButtons/
  2. Disclaimer: I do not dual boot, I have not tested this configuration in conjunction with Windows or Linux Disclaimer: Intel wifi does not work get a half PCI mini card that is confirmed to work on OS X (google is your friend) Part One: The Install Preliminaries: Download latest UB, KB, MB, ACPIBatterymanager kext, attached DSDT, SSDT, and boot.plist ##### ACPI Manager: http://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-acpi-battery-driver/downloads 1.) Format 8gb or larger USB stick HFS+ journaled, MBR partition map!!! 2.) Make UB install key, laptop settings. 3.) Copy attached DSDT.aml, SSDT.aml, and org.chameleon.boot.plist to yourinstaller/Extra, copy MB and ACPIBatteryManager.kext to install drive. 4.) Patch installer with http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/319-yosemite-mbr-patch/ a.) To patch run in terminal: sudo tar zxvf ~/Downloads/Yosemite_10.10_MBR_Patch.tar.gz -C /Volumes/"the name of your installer" 5.) Boot from install drive in one of the back USB ports (the side USB 3 port won't work just yet). 6.) Open Disk Utility from Utilities menu. 7.) Format install drive as HFS+ Journaled, again MBR partition map! 8.) Install! 9.) Reboot using install drive. 10.) Select your new HD install from the boot menu, hit enter. 11.) Set up your user account etc. 12.) Open MB then install following options to your HD only: Drivers > Audio > VoodooHDA v2.7.3 Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC v6.14.1364 Drivers > Misc > PS/2 Keyboard/Mice and Trackpads Drivers > Misc > USB 3.0 - Universal Bootloaders > Chimera v4.0.1 Customize > System Definitions > MacBook Pro > MacBook Pro 8, 1 13.) Place APCIBatteryManager.kext on desktop then run KB to install. 14.) Open Terminal and type: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 15.) Copy DSDT.aml, SSDT.aml, and org.chameleon.boot.plist to yourHD/Extra/ 16.) Reboot. Done Installing!!! Part Two: Tablet and Fingerprint Reader Preliminaries: Download latest Wacom Bamboo Touch driver (if you want pen coordinates to work when rotated), TrueSuite (10.8V) (Fingerprint reader) , Keyup (Onscreen keyboard), and Pivot (0.99 USD) (if you want screen rotation). Wacom: http://us.wacom.com/en/support/drivers/ Keyup: http://www.irradiatedsoftware.com/labs/ TrueSuite: http://web.archive.org/web/20130928013959/http://support.authentec.com/Downloads/MAC/TrueSuite.aspx Pivot: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pivot-display-rotation/id657194146?mt=12 1.) Install all, reboot. 2.) open terminal type: sudo pico /var/truesuite/plugin/ABApiPlugin.tsplugin/Contents/Info.plist 3.) Change the Product ID under Eikon Mini New to 9859, save file with CTRL-O. 4.) Reboot 5.) Open Pivot then open Preferences (in menu bar). a.) Set to open at login. b.) set key board shortcut to CMD-SHFT-DOWN. 6.) Open system preference > TrueSuite. a.) Enroll prints. b.) Open options tab deselect all except Fingerprint Log On and Quick Launch. ( The others don't work, so don't bother. ) c.) Open Setup tab then drag Mission Control, Launchpad, KeyUp, rotate screen script, etc.. from Finder to desired fingers. 7.) Open system preference > Wacom a.) Set up as you like. (I use the Pop-Up Menu for Launchpad, KeyUp, etc..) 8.) Open KeyUp, set desired options in settings. (Launch on login, transparency, etc...) Finished!! What doesn't work: Scroll wheel, tablet buttons, auto rotate, wifi (get a new card). Note: When you rotate screen, do not calibrate it will throw off pen values, I don't know why. T901.zip
  3. I didn't find anyone else with this solution so I'll post it: The problem: You have a USB or built in USB fingerprint scanner by authentec and it is not recognized by truesuite you installed Solution: 1. First go into system information under USB find your fingerprint scanner vendor ID should be 0x08ff 2. Get your product ID and use the built in OSX calculator to convert it to decimal. 3. open a terminal window and type "open /var/truesuite/plugin" 4. If you have a swipe style reader copy ABApiPlugin.tsplugin/Contents/Info.plist or for the optical (like a flat bed scanner) BSApiPlugin.tsplugin/Contents/Info.plist 5. Open file in Xcode 6. In the Info.plist go to SupportDevices 7. Choose any item and change the product ID to the decimal version of your product ID 8. Save 9. Replace original Info.plist with edited version. 10. Reboot 11. Enroll prints. Advice: It should just work with editing any but if it does not try changing the other item product IDs one at a time. This may also work with other brands but you will have to also convert and edit the vendor ID, let me know what you find. CAUTION fingerprint login with true suite is BROKEN in Mavericks
