Btw. if you haven't been actively following
We have some heroes who have already gotten the psb drivers working, still working on 3D tho. The Netbook menu won't work with this, but the normal gnome desktop will.
Actually the UNR menu works fine if you set UNR sessions to be 2D. In System menu fine the Login Screen (I think - i'm at work, cant check) and choose Netbook Launcher 2D. Maximus doesn't start but can be started manually, however you'll get a white screen for some time if you use the Go Home applet.Originally Posted by Leed;
Does anyone have a touchscreen working yet on Lucid? I have a T91MT (vs T91) and eGalax is not the driver. Evtouch used to work but I can't get stuff to compile. Looks like bad incompatibilities with new kernel source
@Leed: Thanks for the link. Display is working not too bad. Stuff does hang my machine - like trying to rotate with xrandr etc but it is usable. I had to set UNE 2D as my session type as well. The thread is pretty active and lucazade is doing some great work!

They sure are doing great work, especially lucazade and jbernado...
The touchscreen is working on my T91 out of the box, but I haven't gotten round to calibrating it properly. I've had some tips on 3rd party applications that should give data you can insert into xorg.conf... but nothing really simple and useful so far.
other T101MT thread and Plippo suggested the evdev driver. I seem to recall messing with that too originally. Think I'll try it again when I get a chance. Thanks for your response!
If you'd like to calibrate the touchscreen in 10.04, just do the following:
First, install the Linux driver from the manufacturer of the touchscreen. When it asks what type it is, enter '0' for USB:
Your xorg.conf will now have the appropriate device section for the touch screen.Code:wget http://www.ideacom.com.tw/download/DRIVE/IDC_Linux_3_1_0.tar.gz tar xvzf IDC_Linux_3_1_0.tar.gz cd IDC_Linux_3_1_0 sudo ./IDC_setup.sh
To calibrate, use the following command:
Edit: For t91 only (as far as I know)
The IDC calibration worked for me except on the screen edges for some reason.
Anyone else having this problem?
Cheers to all of the work that has been done on this in the last month or so. Things have come a looooong way for the usability of my T91SA in Lubuntu. Thank you all.
My touch screen worked before calibration, except for on the edges (and it was inaccurate the further towards the edges you went). After IDC, before I found the calibration, I tried xinput_calibrate. It never worked, sometimes forcing the cursor to the bottom right corner no matter where I touched the screen. The reason I mention this then, is that the output of xinput_calibrate showed me the proper IDC version number. For my T91, my screen is IDC 6680, and that is the driver I linked above. There is also a 6681 driver. Not sure how much of a difference this could make (as that's not the version mine is)...
