That's why I wrote 90% and not 100%. But I don't think so. As I wrote in an answer to
Thiago, I checked with sensor-detect, lspci, lshw, lsusb and did some manual searches
where I might find hints for drivers for an accelerometer. Nothing. And the readings 
for x,y,z remain constant when I move my computer. So I really don't think I have an 
actual accelerometer somewhere. And even if one of my HDs has one, I don't see how 
Qt could get the data.
