rotating the screen, tablet mode tx1301au(tx1000 family)

Rotation of the screen on my laptop did not work with evtouch drivers. The touch screen configuration would go haywire and result in a crazy screen, unusable for any normal use.
With the binary(non-free) Xorg driver from nvidia's website and Touchkit driver from eeti's website the rotation worked perfectly. To use the laptop as a tablet rotate the touchscreen and latch it. Go to the gnome menu system-preferences-nvidia X server settings and then click on Xscreen0. select one of the rotation arrows based on your requirement and there it is, you have a touch surfboard.

I am still on the look out for good handwriting input apps. Hang on.

Nobody can deter me away from "free as in freedom" concept seeded by Sri RMS. See to it that u dont make fun of my belief. If u think otherwise, no need to comment.
