    Question Eee Slate EP121 - Reporting Bugs

    Dear Eee Slate EP121 Users,

    since the Slate functionality in ubuntu is faaaar from perfect I would like to report all bugs related to this piece of hardware and Ubuntu 12.10 - Quantal Quetzal to launchpad.

    So I am searching in a first step allies which want to become "responsibles" of one or several bugs (sending bug reports and follow up). In a next step we should identify the hardware related bugs and distribute them according the individual interest of each "responsible".

    Who wants to report bugs?!

    Also I would be very gratefull, if you could click for each bug on the corresponding bug-reporting-page: "This bug affects X person. Does this bug affect you?"

    Well, I made a first inventory of all the ep121 related bugs I found so far. Could you please confirm me that you experiencing the same problems and/or inform me if there are more bugs which have to reported/monitored.

    Re: Eee Slate EP121 - Reporting Bugs

    I have confirmed on launchpad the bugs I have been able to reproduce.


    I also believe that multitouch is not working properly, but I do not know if it is a bug related to EP121 or simply a functionality that is not implemented in ubuntu.

    Re: Eee Slate EP121 - Reporting Bugs

    Thanks for your support.

    Please could you reconfirm, that you don't have the nautilus-navigation-bug, because this is actually the most annoying bug I have found so far, since it avoids a "normal" usage of Ubuntu.

    It seems, when I touch once the screen with my finger the mouse (Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500) got to the state "click&hold" and can not be released from this state anymore, even when I unplug it fiscally.

    To illustrate this I've made a screenshot of the shutdown dialogue, where you can see, that when I hover over the dialog the text get selected, even so I don't press the left mouse button.

    And my impression is, that only GTK(3) aplications are affected by this bug.

    Re: Eee Slate EP121 - Reporting Bugs

    I've had the Asus EP121 since it first came out and put Ubuntu on it almost the day I got it. It has gotten a TON better, but it's still frustrating at times. I'll admit that I'm 'tech savvy' but I'm definitely not able to do any type of deep 'detective' work and change things to make it act how I want... Having said that, I'm more than capable of searching the forums and trying 'simple' fixes.

    Touching the screen with my finger seems to work intermittenly, but almost always results in a 'stuck click' behaviour even with the newest eGalax drivers.

    Cannot 'double click' using finger touch.

    Multitouch doesn't work for me.

    Onboard behaviour is also a little annoying at times. When typing in the firefox address or search bar if a suggestion pops down, the keyboard disappears. When placing the cursor in a text entry box on the facebook website the keyboard does not appear.

    These are minor gripes, to be sure considering the Wacom drawing capabilities I gain, but every day use issues that keep this from being my 'daily driver.'

    I just can't wait until we can use the EP121 with the Ubuntu for Tablets interface!

    Lightbulb Re: Eee Slate EP121 - Reporting Bugs

    I was playing with the Slate B121 which is supposed to have the same hardware more or less and installing Ubuntu 13.04 tonight. Like many others have reported with the device, everything worked fine except the touchscreen. The issue I was having with it was that it was not registering the end of my click just as the above post described. I scoured the web for any info in regards to the issue and found things ranging from xorg to drivers. Every where I looked though led me to 1 common task which was to manually install the eGalax Touch drivers. So that is what I did, I installed "eGTouch_v2.5.2107.L-x" and during install I selected USB. From here I rebooted and encountered the same problems.


    Here is where my venture started to yield some new information. Many attempted fixes suggested modifying a file in /etc/X11/xorg/xorg.conf.d/ however I did not have that file and I started investigating. After several hours of reading through a bunch of information, I decided to investigate if any other distros got it working to see if this was the appropriate path. I stumbled across a post discussing getting it to work properly in Crunchbang by modifying a similar xorg conf file located under /usr/share/X11. So I peeked at that location, found the configurations files that were similar to what the "fixes" discussed. The exact file I keyed in on was /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/52-egalax-virtual.conf. Now what was interesting about the Crunchbang article was he provided a much more detailed .conf file, so I copied it into the above .conf file and rebooted. Low and behold all working.

    *ADDED* I ran into the issue again after a period of time. I turned on sound card beep for touch states and it sounded on both. I switched mouse mode from normal to click on touch and that brought touchscreen functionality back. From there I started reading the manual and saw an option I have not seen others mention which is meant specifically for HID on the EEEPC Line. So I turned it on, rebooted and got more calibration options and better function from the touchscreen. So far with further testing it seems to work well. As the issue did come back originally after some use, I am not certain this truly resolved the issues, but will update if it does or does not comeback.

    *ADDED* I shut the tablet down last night and powered it back on this morning to test and lost functionality again. I reran the eGTouchU and notice I lost the calibration options again. I'll have to investigate why I lost the calibration options. I suspect that may be related to the issue. As a side note, switching to click on touch or release still seems to work fine.


    So here is a Recap of steps that seem to get it working:

    1. Download the eGalax driver (eGTouch_v2.5.2107.L-x) on their webpage
    2. Extract to folder under home
    3. Open terminal to folder from above step, mine was /home/"username"/eGalax
    4. Run sudo sh setup.sh
    5. Choose USB option as interface
    6. Choose 1 controller
    7. Reboot
    8. Open terminal
    9. sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/52-egalax-virtual.conf
    10. Paste the following into the file
    11. Reboot
    12. *ADDED* Run eGTouchU found in /usr/bin/
    13. *ADDED* Tool tab has 4pts Cal, Linearization, Clear Parameter, and Draw Test. Only line test was available till i remodifed the .conf file below to include Option "HidOnEPC" "1"

    Re: Eee Slate EP121 - Reporting Bugs

    Happy news today, finally found a solution to the touchsreen problem. The evdev input driver is the bad guy! So I just replaced evdev driver with the wacom driver and tataaa it works.

    gksudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf

    and make the following ajustment

    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "evdev touchscreen catchall"
    MatchIsTouchscreen "on"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Driver "wacom"
    EndSection

    Thats it
