tablet mode in ubuntu


New Member

when switching to tablet mode on the Lenovo Yoga 530-14R, my touchpad automatically turns off and that's cool. But the keyboard is turned on, which is annoying.

I have two scripts, one turns it off with the command:
"xinput float 16"

the second turns it on:
"xinput reattach 16 3"

It can definitely be done automatically as I rotate the screen to tablet mode so that it also automatically turns off the keyboard. I think it could be related to excluding the touchpad.

Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

thank you wery, it`s work. But if you try to back to normal mode keyboard don`t work.
Ping them at their gitlab site and let them know. They're very approachable. They mention a popup to ask about keyboard activation. I've never used it - I just happened to be in the dev chat when it was discussed.


I went to see how to contact them through that site, but it won't let me authorize with GitHub. You'll have to figure that out on your own.
