    Lilliput screen on Ubuntu

    Installed Hardy and picked up everything except the touchscreen. If it touch the screen it will click where ever the mouse is and wont move the cursor. I have tried unpacking and making but it will just continue to give me errors. Has anyone installed the screen on Ubuntu?

    not used one of them, but i've set up a few touchscreens under ubuntu. What type is it? i.e. wacom, evtouch or whatever?

    i think he was asking what driver it uses. It probably would use either evtouch or egalax from my experience. And until evtouch issues a new release for xserver 1.3/1.4 I can't recommend it...

    in that case it wants to use the egalax driver.

    don't use the ones in the box, go here for more up-to-date:

    I believe hardy runs xserver 1.3 (check with a dpkg -l | grep xserver. Download that one, extract it somewhere, and run setup.sh as root (or sudo). Setup takes care of the rest. Afterthat, you can run /usr/bin/TouchKit and calibrate it (if needed).

    good luck.

    Lightbulb A SOLUTION... Finally

    Basically everything i tried previously i threw out the window.

    I reinstalled the touchscreen cal tool in the ubuntu Repositories then i was on the ubuntu-mobile mailing list:

    [email protected]

    and i was helped out by a guy on the list and i found out about the fdi files (im kind of a noob) and i tweeked it to fit.

    opened /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/50-eGalax.fdi

    changed the max/min value (this took the longest to realize somethimg obvious)
    after restarting X 50 billion times here is the final file for

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->
    <deviceinfo version="0.2">
      <device>
        <match key="info.product" contains="eGalax">
          <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input">
            <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">evtouch</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.minx" type="string">70</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.miny" type="string">70</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.maxx" type="string">1900</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.maxy" type="string">1900</merge>
    
            <merge key="input.x11_options.taptimer" type="string">30</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.longtouchtimer" type="string">750</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.longtouched_action" type="string">click</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.longtouched_button" type="string">3</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.oneandhalftap_button" type="string">2</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.movelimit" type="string">10</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.touched_drag" type="string">1</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.maybetapped_action" type="string">click</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.maybetapped_button" type="string">1</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.rotate" type="string">cw</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.swapx" type="bool">false</merge>
            <merge key="input.x11_options.swapy" type="bool">false</merge>
          </match>
        </match>
      </device>
    </deviceinfo>
    the rotate needed to be clockwise
    and i didnt swap x or y

    the MAX abslt edge is is 2000 the min edge is 0
    then i bumbed it inside so to give me some room to touch it. still needs a bit of adjustment


    I should be given a FREE distro of Ubuntu for doing this. (a joke)
