Palatis mentions that on his laptop the sensor is actually y_inverted.
Could you check your laptop? In particular it would be nice if you could
describe the values for the four positions defined in the documentation
file. BTW, what is the exact version of your laptop? Is it the same as

Palatis, could you let us know if you also have a lot of "noise" in the
values. That is, if when using jstest /dev/input/js0 you see big changes
in the values. Is it like on Giuseppe's laptop of around 8000?

Moreover I'm wondering if this could be an error on LSB/MSB ordering.
Maybe looking at the raw values (cat
/sys/devices/platform/lis3lv02d/position) would give more insight...
