    Odd, I tried that and it didn't seem to do it for me. I'll go through it again more carefully.

    How did you get the Time Machine/Airport update fixed? I did the update and I no longer have WiFi ("No Airport Card Installed"). Thankfully, I have Bluetooth --> Blackberry EVDO as a backup, but I really need to get WiFi up and going again... I'd be very thankful for a fix. If not, I'll probably attempt poaching a kext off of an unpatched install.

    Do you have the PCCard fix installed? That'll kill your sleep. I tried the PCCard drivers and later removed them. On my machine the WiFi light no longer works (I 'side-graded' to the Atheros chip) and the hardware switch seems only to affect Bluetooth. Sleep works fine when the hardware switch is at 'off' (no bluetooth but yes WiFi) and doesn't work when the hardware switch is at 'on' (yes bluetooth and WiFi). Good luck.

    Yea... I had an M-Audio JamLab that would have been perfect, but before I installed OS X on my personal computer, I had already donated it to a single mother whose Dell went haywire. She's currently using it to get audio out of the OS X Tiger install I setup for her. She and her kids seem to be loving OS X, and no more viruses and porn popups.

    Hey, I was wondering if I should go ahead and install IOPCCard or if it still prevents sleep? EDIT: I also want to give a heads-up to stay the hell away from Menufela on Leopard! As an artist I wanted a true full-screen without the menubar. The site says it isn't compatible with Leopard, but the new beta version is confusingly called 'sketch', so thought I'd give it a try on Leopard as the warning didn't seem to apply to 'sketch' but only 'menufela'. BIG mistake. As far as I can tell, my install is toast. I can't get past the light-blue screen after the grey bootup screen, even in safe mode. And just when everything was working so nicely too... UPDATE: fixed the menufela problem. Apparently affects all Leopard machines and software that uses 'application enhancer'. Also, the PCCard fix does kill sleep (whether or not a card is inserted). Also, though it does make the PCCard slot work, my specific card doesn't have x86 Mac drivers (only PPC).

    anyone know a good free alternative to inkBook? InkBook isn't expensive, but I would be far more inclined to pay for it if it didn't use a proprietary file format. I'm really sick of having to export my notes to a new format each time I change platforms or programs, and typically the best I can do is export static PDF's to refer to. I wish there was a really solid standardized format for multi-page text + vector graphics (plus bitmaps would be nice too).

    I'm really surprised by how solid it is here too. I'm actually not finding the thermals to be terrible, as in Ubuntu I was finding it to be over 50 all the time too. Sometimes it would climb all the way to 60 (the flash plugin seems to be particularly terrible in Ubuntu 64-bit). EDIT: Using just outZider's settings I'm finding calibration to be nearly perfect. Only the left-most edge is a little wonky. P.S. Is there a good Mac utility for monitoring system power usage in watts? I found that on battery mode Ubuntu x64 used between 14-19 watts.

    Hey, don't feel obliged to do anything. You can do as much or as little as you want. You've already done a crapload more than 99.9% of us around here (including me!). Keep it up if you can, and if you can't... well I'm still going to use your great tools!
  9. Lenovo ThinkPad X61 Tablet

    inkBook? Will check it out. For now the killer app for stunning your friends will still be ArtRage. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it. Free starter edition is plenty, but its a very small charge for a whole lotta program if you go for the full version. http://www.ambientdesign.com/artrage.html We're getting very close now =) so much is thanks to you, outZider, for us X61 folk (still the best tablet out there, in my opinion. 1400x1050 IPS display? What what!). Now we just need: screen brightness control, sound (supposedly will work soon), speed step, and then the less important stuff: ethernet, modem, PC Card w/ sleep (i don't really care about any of those). Is HDD spindown working? I can't quite tell for sure. EDIT: what about screen rotation? I suppose we just need to either A) fool Leopard into thinking its an external display or kill the rotation block on internal displays?

    So its all fixed up now and cool =) you will forever have my gratitude. And perhaps, one day, my donation as well? I have to say, Ink really sucks compared to Vista's handwriting recognition but that's not your fault, and its not a big deal anyways.

    Is there a specific order you recommend for installing TabletMagic, installing the enabler, and fixing the ACPI info.plist? Reboot in between steps? I first installed TabletMagic, kext helper'd the enabler, replaced the info.plist with yours, did a diskutil permissions repair, and then restarted. Was it a mistake to use diskutil to repair permissions? Should I have edited my ACPI serial info.plist instead of just replacing it with yours? Thanks. EDIT: FIXED FIXED FIXED!!! I just tried kext helper on the enabler again and restarted. Then I just had to make sure TabletMagic was using the right serial port. Not sure why it didn't work before (before it just showed pci-serial3). THANKS THANKS THANKS! YOU'RE MY HERO!

    Kexload tells me that it appears to be loadable, and then tells me it has successfully loaded it. Killed the TabletMagic daemon and then restarted it. No dice. Still not seeing anything for TabletEnabler in Console. I have my wireless switch off, which on this computer does not affect WiFi (only BT). Do I need that on? I also noticed that the wireless switch doesn't seem to be enabling BT at the moment... hrm... Did you guys install that recent Leopard security update? I didn't. Though I did install the new Safari 3.1. outZider: you are so incredibly the mack-daddy of the entire world for getting back to me so quick on this. EDIT: Bluetooth isn't working in Ubuntu either. I might need to find a way into Vista to reenable it first. Not a big deal. Also want to note that I know my tablet hardware is fine, because it works (pressure sensitivity and all) in Ubuntu. Maybe I'm just really stupid when it comes to OS X? I like to think not...

    Ok, will do. Before I do that I wanted to note that ThinkPadTabletEnabler is not showing up in the list of kexts in System Profiler. Should it? Hrm, i don't see an 'All Messages' but when I type 'TabletEnabler' into the filter box in the corner I get no listings.
  14. Lenovo ThinkPad X61 Tablet

    Seems like a no-go here =( TabletMagic detects the tablet as ISD V4.0 (TabletPC) This is TabletMagic 2.0b13 For the install of outZider's enabler I used kext helper, and then I stuck in his customized plist as indicated in ACPI. I then repaired permissions using diskutil. As far as I can tell, TabletMagic is detecting the tablet, but is showing no data from it. This machine has an SXGA+. Are you guys using the SXGA+ or the multi-touch 1024x768?

    Holy {censored}, this is the coolest {censored} to hit the interwebs in a long time. I just gotta pull out my Ubuntu drive, stick in my Mac drive, and reboot. I'll give it a spin =) On a related note: I am officially Microsoft free: I returned from a night of partying and found myself wanting to use Skype, so I picked up my silent computer and went ahead swapping out the Leopard drive for the Vista drive. Then powered it on. Surprise surprise... it wasn't off, it was asleep! Leopard must have done something or another to the drive. Vista refused to boot after that (something having to do with unverified DLL's?). Tried disk-checking it and all, but no go. At least all the data is still there. After backing up the data, I installed Ubuntu. Its quite cool actually. Anyways, time for me to give the MacTablet a spin!!!
