Hi,

I'm trying to get auto-orientation working on my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop with 16.04. I grabbed 4.14.6 kernel with ukuu to get some kernel-level fixes in the iio layer, and the raw sensor drivers seem to be working just fine.

However, the version of iio-sensor-proxy that ships in 16.04 is really old, and doesn't manage to grab the drivers properly.

I wrote it up here:

https://github.com/hadess/iio-sensor-proxy/issues/204

including a response from the author of the iio-sensor-proxy package.

Attempting to rebuild latest iio-sensor-proxy from source quickly degenerated into library version dependency hell.

Just throwing this out there to see if anybody has any suggestions! Is there some sort of process to request a package version bump?

Thanks,

John
