Has anyone using the eGalax touch screen been able to us it to draw, and can you help me configure it? I get a bunch of line from the corner of the screen to where the stylus currently is instead of a smooth path.

I'm using the drivers downloaded from http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/eGalaxTouchDriver/linuxDriver.htm.

I'm hoping someone was at the point I'm at( the default configurations after executing ./setup.sh) and know what needs to be done from here.

Thanx
