Some utility bash scripts for the ASUS T100TA.
Note: The scripts in this project were created and tested for the ASUS
T100TA running Debian GNU/Linux 10
Buster. These scripts should work on
other GNU/Linux distributions and similar hardware as well with minor or no
These utility scripts provide some functionalities that are missing or partially implemented in GNU/Linux systems because of bugs and still unsupported hardware. Please check the page Debian Wiki - Debian on ASUS T100TA for a summary of the issues still affecting the T100TA with Debian.
This script can perform two actions:
The input devices (e.g. touchscreen, touchpad) are rotated accordingly.
The automatic rotation mode makes use of
monitor-sensor from the package
Please note that the GNOME Desktop Environment already provides several
functionalities based on
iio-sensor-monitor, therefore GNOME users should
have no need of this script. For the KDE Plasma desktop environment see Bug
353463 - RFE: Make use of iio-sensor-proxy.
This script can change the the brightness of the screen using
xrandr does not actually act on the screen backlight but it works
by applying gamma corrections. These are software only modifications and do
not have any impact on the power consumption (meaning no battery saving).
This script was created because of the lack of a working method to control the backlight of the screen.
User defined variables in the first section of the scripts need to be set so to reflect user's setup. Then the script can be launched as usual, check the help with e.g.:
