Enabling Screen Rotate Button for Asus t91 in Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala

After a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala on my Asus T91 the screen rotation button was not functioning. After a bit of googling I found this post:

The instructions on the are for Ubuntu 9.04 so i have tested them in 9.10. To enable the screen resolution button open a terminal and type the following:

sudo gedit /etc/acpi/events/asus-rotate-t91

then place these two lines in the file and save:

event=hotkey (ATKD|HOTK) 0000007b

Now reboot and your screen rotate button should work.
