I have adjusted the thinkpad-yoga-script to work for the Thinkpad Yoga 14 S3: https://github.com/johanneswilm/thinkpad-yoga-14-s3-scripts . It takes care of rotation, blocking trackpad when in tablet mode and automatic brightness control (all issues that weren't taken care of hitherto).

In my experience, Ubuntu boots fine, however not without issue. Issues: (as of ubuntu 14.10) Installation: As with all laptops with Windows 8, (pre-installed), UEFI can be a bit of a pain when installing, but this guide should get you through that with no issue. Touch Screen: Touch screen works, but there is no multi-touch or scroll support. So for ...

This isn't really an "answer" per-se, but I don't get this issue using 14.10. At some point the issue must have been fixed. I'm not sure if it's fixed in 12.10 though.
