[Bug 1199217] Re: Dell laptops' ST Microelectronics Free Fall Sensor (accelerometer) [pnp:8810] cannot be detected at all


Userspace daemon hdapsd starting from version 20141024 has also support
for Dell SMO88xx accelerometers. Package hdapsd version 1:20141203-1 is
already packaged in Ubuntu Vivid release. Older ubuntu versions have
older version of hdapsd which do not have SMO88xx support.

  Dell laptops' ST Microelectronics Free Fall Sensor (accelerometer)
  [pnp:8810] cannot be detected at all

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  CID: 201201-10339 Dell Latitude E6530 [1]
  CID: 201307-13941 Dell Latitude E5440 [2]

  According to the information provided by Dell, these systems should have an accelerometer on the motherboard (Free-Fall sensor), but it cannot be detected at all
  (cannot be found in  /proc/bus/input/devices)

  If using windows, it shows ACPI/SMO8810 in device manager
  If you run "lspnp", you can see: 
  00:0c SMO8810 (unknown)
