    Re: Asus T91 linux installation

    After calibration, did you immediately restart X?

    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
    Your xorg.conf will now have the appropriate device section for the touch screen.

    Reboot.

    To calibrate, use the following command:
    Code:
    sudo /usr/local/IDC/calibration
    Enjoy!

    Edit: For t91 only (as far as I know)
    Finally got round to testing this... Absolutely cool calibration tool!!! Works a charm on my T91, thanks a lot.

    Haven't figured out right click yet, but finally having a calibrated touch screen is nice.

    EDIT: Right click works with the stylus but not my finger for some reason. Just tap and hold for 1.5 seconds. Found in /usr/local/IDC/setting.txt

    Do you have the problem of the cursor position messing up at the edges of the screen?

    No I do not. Make sure you run the calibration tool as the superuser, and restart X/your computer afterwards.

    Also, in the setting.txt file, I changed the timeout to 1000 (ms) and the movement to 100 (Originally 30 or something low) and I can now get right click menus using my finger.

    I can't calibrate touchscreen. I'm running:

    sudo /usr/local/IDC/calibration

    then calibration tool appears and immediately closes. No output at console. video driver - poulsbo by lucazade (1024x600)

    Tried again and it worked. Not sure why it didn't the first few times, but thank you

    Now to tackle a new problem: hard lock ups while using gimp or mtPaint. Strangest thing is nothing in syslogs, so I'm guessing hardware/bios/etc problems. Will keep you all posted.

    EDIT: turns out, this hard lock up also happens when I switch to dvorak and back to us using xkbsel <layout>, which is consistent since my arrow keys are disabled in dvorak for some reason (no big loss there)

    EDIT 2: lock up no longer happens on switching keyboard layouts (still happens with graphics), but now when I switch to dvorak and back to us, I cannot use the keyboard (letter keys are dead); improvement nonetheless

    To verify no output, do this:

    Code:
    cd /usr/local/IDC/
    sudo ./calibration > ~/A_FILE_NAME.txt
    cat ~/A_FILE_NAME.txt
    For "A_FILE_NAME" use anything that is not already a file in your home directory.

    Wow! Another dvorak user running Ubuntu on a T91. There can't be many of us. I don't have your arrow key problem (although I'm still running 9.10). I switch keyboards by adding additional layouts in the gnome keyboard setup utility and setting the windows-style "alt-shift" as a switching shortcut.

    I think I just got that utility when I got baobab, so I shall give that a try. Lubuntu doesn't make it as easy as Gnome and KDE did, but it should work. If anything, I can modify xorg.
