Bug ID: 391498
           Summary: Tablet mode for convertibles (laptops with hinge
           Product: plasmashell
           Version: master
          Platform: Neon Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
  Target Milestone: 1.0

My laptop is an HP envy x360 convertible. It's screen can be rotated 360
degrees (so that the back of the screen touches the back of the keyboard and
the laptop becomes very much like a tablet).

The laptop has windows preinstalled. On windows when I rotate the screen 360
degrees, windows detects this and asks to "switch to tablet mode".

In tablet mode:
 - screen is rotated according to orientation*
 - keyboard and touchpad are disabled**
 - an on-screen keyboard pops up for anything that needs a keyboard (the
android way)
 - (not sure of this) a 2-finger click triggers a right-click. This currently
works in google chrome. Try it on chrome with a touch screen.

*(it seems the laptop has a built-in gsensor) (this can be done using `xrandr
-o right` `xrandr -o inverted` `xrandr -o normal`...
**There volume up & down buttons and a "meta" button on the side. Those are
meant to be used in tablet mode. When I disable the entire keyboard those are
disabled too.
