yes but supa sensitive, need to find a fix for this, or a way to disable the click feature in the pointer.

IMPORTANT: in order for xinput-calibrator to work after reboot you need to do the following.

Boot into recovery, then root

Xorg -configure

then

cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf

This will create the xorg.conf file - reboot

Load Ubuntu, run calibration program and copy output and place into xorg.conf
I put the contents at the bottom of the file just before section device

Without this every time you reboot you will have to re-calibrate - with this file in place your settings are remembered.

Same issue on different hardware

How to create xorg.conf
http://askubuntu.com/questions/4662/where-is-the-x-org-config-file-how-do-i-configure-x-there
(Type on this page shows "X" when is should be "Xorg -configure"

The above should do it and it works fine in 10.10 Maveric

Good luck :)

hmm eglax must do this by default and save coords. No need to reconfigure or add calibration coors manually. You sure eglax is too hard to install? this sounds like it more work in my opinion.

I guess you are right - but when I tried to hunt down the Eglax drivers for Ubuntu all the links were dead, hence my seach upon the solution above.

oh ok, one more program for you to install is vaiofand. this program lets you have full control of the ux fan! you can set idle fan speed much slower than default, which results in a much quieter ux, also set what temps the fan throttles to full speed, but most importantly, yoyu can set fan speeds beyond the max speed from the bios!

Looks good... Link http://vaio-utils.org/
They do power management as well - have you installed this?
I need to read up on the suggested settings and then install.
Cheers
