Plasma mobile on HP pro Tablet 408 - auto screen rotation doesn't work


I installed plasma mobile on a HP pro tablet 408 (Intel Atom Quad Core Processor* Z3736F). I made a stable iso with manjaro-tools buildiso.

No it seems auto screen rotation doesn’t work. I installed iio-sensor-proxy, but that doesn’t seem to work. When I check systemctl status iio-sensor-proxy.service, the service is dead. I can’t enable it also, I get the message this service isn’t meant to be enabled using systemd.

When I check dmesg, the accelerometer is recognized as bcm150_accel_i2c. There are some error messages:

I can rotate the screen with:

kscreen-doctor output.1.rotation.right

So if I could ad a button to the quick-menu (where you can switch on/off wifi; auto-rotate, sound, etc), thats fine for me to. Probably it already exist, but how do you have to enable it?

I forgot to mention if I rotate the screen in the system settings, it turns automatic back to the default orientation after around 5 seconds.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe there is no support for this chip in the kernel.

Need to look it up in linux kenel.

Hey Roel
Can you send me the iso file and how to install … i have this pro 408 and am tired of it windows 8.1 … thank you

I should check if I still have it.

I have a mate build 22.0.0, a plasma build 22.0.1 en xfce build 22.0.4. I can also build a fresh one.

Hey Roel
can you send me a link to most stable one …

Thank you

This is the link to plasma-mobile:

pin code to login in plasma mobile is 123456. If you want to disable pin: Possible to disable pin? - #2 by Strit

You can also remove the phone stuff from the drop down quick menu. Although, I should check again in which config file you have to do this.

thank you… downloading it right now and will try and update you how it went …thx again

Hey Roel
i tried it and am loving it … But have you tried android on it before ? i did but there was no sound at all …

I tried BlissOS, but I can’t remember there was sound. But they do regular updates and according me, their kernel is approx up to date.

Nah even that latest build still with no sound . i think it kernel problem . as matter of fact i tried many linux distro and non worked with sound only your version …
