Spectre X360 Ubuntu Screen

Spectre X360
Linux

I haven't had too many issues but occaisionaly the screen flickers.  My biggest question is I am looking for advice on how to get the screen to rotate into tablet mode when it is flipped and have the keyboard and trackpad turn off.  Do you have any advice?  I am using Ubuntu 16.04.

Spectre X360 Ubuntu Screen

Hello @timbopt,

 

Welcome back to the HP Support Forums!

 

I came across your post about the display issue, and wanted to help!  I understand that when you go to rotate the screen, it does not automatically rotate.

 

For your product, the Auto-Rotation feature should be disabled by default.  To turn it on, you can follow the steps below:

 

  1. Fold the computer into tablet mode.

  2. Swipe in from the right side to open the Action Center.

  3. Tap Rotation lock to enable this feature.

If you are still having trouble, then you may need to update the Graphics, BIOS, and Chipset drivers.

There is no "Action Center" that I know of in Ubuntu (Linux).  I tried swiping as you described and got nothing.   Action Center is specific to Windows.  Please read my original post fully in order to help me.  I am running Ubuntu 16.04.  I really have 2 issues.  The screen issue and problems with the wifi getting a good signal when I am in Ubuntu.  Please provide a solution for this operating system.
