Solution for No Auto Rotation (Linx 7-8 and Lamina Tablets) after updating to Windows 10

The problem I know is with the drivers, my wife’s Linx 8 Tablet had the same problem after updating from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, I had “No Rotation” and “No Rotation Lock” in action centre. The solution I found was at this address cd-rw.org The drivers for the different Linx and Lamina tablets and the solution is as follows. (This one is for linx 7, but the instructions are the same for all 3 tablet (a.k.a. Lamina T-701 and Lamina T-801) touch screens.

After doing a clean install or upgrade to windows 10 how to fix the screen orientation (auto rotate) problem.

Download The Drivers
Open Zip File
Open G-Sensor/20140626/kxaccel-1.0.13.20-win8-x86.exe
Apply kionix_sensor_orientation.reg registry file (double click file)
Reboot your tablet and voila.

Drivers can be found here:

Linx 7 / Lamina T-701

Linx 8 / Lamina T-801

These links also include Bluetooth and WiFi Drivers too

I hope this helps as it did with mine, let me know in a reply how you get on.

dMedia Ver 4.0: Free Music & Video Downloader.

This excellent little app began life sometime in 2008 as dTunes. Today it is known as dMedia and it enables you to download, listen, and watch music and videos from sites like Last.FM, Jamendo.com, FreeMusicArchive.org, Archive.org, (to name a few).

The app consists of a ‘Built-in-Browser’, ‘Download Manager’, ‘File Manager’, ‘Playlist Manager’, and last but by no means least, it’s own ‘Audio Player’. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. and requires iOS 4.0 or later to run.

The free version is funded by ads which can be removed for a small fee of $1.99 [€1.59]. I like this wee app, and found it very useful when adding rare tracks to my music collection. A small demo of it in action is contained in AppStoreReviewer’s video below.

You can Download dMedia Direct From iTunes for free,
