Default Questions about thinkpad x41 tablet on BSD (Open/Free)

Hello again. I threw my post here because it's more generic.

Finally two days ago I bought a thinkpad x41 tablet. The main reasons were that it's light, I can use it as an ebook/comic reader (the screen rotates) and that it works perfectly over BSD as I've seen on my friend's x41.

For beginning I used FreeBSD. I managed to assign the screen buttons as PageUp/PageDown/Escape/Return creating ~/.xmodmaprc with:

Code:
keycode 206 = 0xff55
keycode 205 = 0xff56
keycode 200 = Return
keycode 203 = Escape
Now my 2 questions are:

- After the boot, I give
Code:
xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
to use those buttons. Is there any way to make it work without this?

- I saw that there is an input-wacom driver in the ports section. I also read that this doesn't work with the new kernel. Is there any other way to use the touch screen? (I can live without it, but it was so convenient when I used it under Linux).

I even started to think the possibility to install an earlier distribution.

You can just add the xmodmap command to your ~/.xinitrc (If you use xinit or startx) or ~/.xsession (If you use xdm) to start it automatically when you start X.

As for the touchscreen, I haven't a clue. Never used it.

No worries. I still hope.
