ok .. i think it is working now ... .
the problem is KDE since it screwed up somehow .. i am was 3.1.0 KDE and 
if i choose there ( Control Center ) to rotate to right it rotate`s
upside down , when i rotate left i get the KDE Bar in the middle of the 
screen and rotation back to normal is fine ..
i am updating now to KDE 3.1.4 to see if it makes a difference ...

I think i am there and i ll now look then at tslib to get my touchscreen 
also working ...

Cheers Rob
