Installing HDAPS on UBUNTU Lynx (10.04)

I did it on a clean UBUNTU Lynx installation by using tutorial founded on the thinkwiki.org.

This is the main how-to
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Installing_Ubuntu_9.10_(Karmic_Koala)_on_a_ThinkPad_T61#Install_HDAPS_-_IBM_Active_Protection_System_Linux_Driver

I think you should also install the following modules before starting the installation:

sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant

If you want to check if everything works correctly use hdaps-gl from hdaps-utils package. This is the simple opengl application that displays laptop position in real-time.

The package - hdaps-utils_0.1-1.1_i386.deb - works fine for my setup.

You can also use the Avant Window Navigator with the ThinkHDAPS applet.

To change the sensitivity edit the file (as the root user)

/etc/default/hdaps

and change the SENSITIVITY line. The higher value means less sensitivity.

To restart the hdapsd execute following command

sudo /etc/init.d/hdapsd restart
