I don't think that anything is supposed to happen after that command. (feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong)
It is a 2 step process
- 1 enable the kernel module, done by the suggested command
- 2 install the actual touchscreen deamon, the guy actualy says it in his topic:
you may need binary drivers from the vendor. I know in my case, my device needs the eGalax touch daemon driver.
=>> this points to the EETI egalax driver.
Which you can, after step 1, install without the kernel patch (I think)
So for step 2 in shourt, just run :
If you are on fedora you might have to create /etc/rc.local upfront, anyway the installer should not give you any (E) signs.
Next is to start the deamon (get the command from /etc/rc.local )
sudo /usr/bin/eGTouchD -d
Testing your installation (still from the driver directory):
=>> this one has a multitouch draw test build in.
So far everything should be ok, now you can automate the startup.
next to know is that this daemon will not survive suspend to well, I haven't tested it that far yet but I suppose you/we need to handle it with the acpi events or something.
Next up is installing the necessary tools for getting multitouch in your apps.
Now ubuntu has a bunch of apps, which mostly reside on utouch and geis, like touchegg , ginn, ...
Personally I was thinking about experimenting with ginn (now my other pc is back to 100% ok, I can screw this one up again
all under the instinct of making things better offcourse
wanna join the fun?
