Well - had to bail and go back to ubuntu. Installed the 10.04.1 - and the only thing I had to do with the touch/stylus was simply add the udev rules and the xorg.conf -- no compiling necessary. wow. anyway - managed to get gdm in opensuse to not allow me to log in and that's a bust - so thanks for the help guys.
Favux and others,
I want to apologize for my silence on the forums. I have not abandoned my work to get the multi-touch working and give feedback to the forum. I had some emergency family travel and now I am back, the University term is starting and this will be unavoidably busy for me for a bit.
I will be back and I am still excited to get multi-touch working.
Welcome back. Looking forward to your multi-touch input.
There is a wiki for multitouch now. You can find it here. If you are testing Maverick, you can try out gesturetest (look in the wiki about testing multitouch in Maverick) and help test it out.
It seems to catch the gestures pretty well. However, there are no applications that I know about that are available at this time to view.
The PyMT application does not seem to recognize the N-trig device (or else I am missing something to make it work) because I can only get one finger to be recognized.

If you're just getting single touch out of it, chances are that you're just using the x input module.
Hi, I am using HP TouchSmart TX2, and running 64 bit Lucid. I want to still use my pen input on the laptop touch screen, while connected external monitor to the VGA port. The external monitor was configured as extension to the laptop monitor in X.
Currently I have two problem:
1. When I rotate the laptop screen, the stylus input mirror the cursor movement.
2. Even if I didn't rotate the laptop, when I try to use stylus input drawing on the laptop screen, the cursor position is always off set.
I found the term calibration showing up here and there, but not sure if it is used to solve my problem number 2. Can some expert point it out?
My problem is how to tell x windows that the pen input is to tablet monitor only, so every time I use it, it does not move away to extended monitor.
If the stylus is not called 'N-Trig Pen stylus', replace it with the name or id that it is defined in xinput --list.Code:xinput list-props 'N-Trig Pen stylus'
