    There are pdf files in the Guide directory when you download the binaries. It is about as line by line as you can get.

    I hope that helps.

    Here it is:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Documents/bin-usb/elousbctrl-src$ make
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.27-4-lpia/build M=/home/ubuntu/Documents/bin-usb/elousbctrl-src modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.27-4-lpia/build'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.27-4-lpia/build'
    make: *** [default] Error 2

    It is a total guess, but maybe try doing a make from the directory above.

    Okay, I got the egalax driver working under intrepid. Here's what I did:

    Code:
    wget http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/drivers/touch_driver/Linux/2.04.2119/TouchKit-2.04.2119-32b-k26-x1499.tar.gz
    
    tar xzf TouchKit-2.04.2119-32b-k26-x1499.tar.gz
    
    cd TouchKit...
    
    sudo ./setup.sh
    
    (ran through the setup, it detected my screen, I selected option [3 usb], it asked if I wanted to blacklist the "usbtouchscreen" module, I said yes.)
    
    sudo reboot
    when it came back up, the touchscreen worked, but it was a little bit off around the edges.

    I then proceeded to calibrate:

    Code:
    sudo TouchKit
    
    clicked on "4 point calibration"
    
    touched the 4 points.
    Everything worked after that.

    Hope that helps!

    everything installed just fine, it found the HID compliant touchscreen, after reboot, there is no reponse at all when i press on the screen.
    It seems the screen only response to the elo driver that came originally with unbuntu mobile.

    Same

    My post is very similar to yours with the same distro and ts yours has more interest and help. The ts is not centered and is off axis. I checked that my USB plug is right side up jk.
