Here is a new experimental attempt for getting the hid-ntrig kernel module installed on Lucid or Maverick. It will be through dkms so that each time the kernel is updated, it will automatically rebuild the hid-ntrig kernel module for you.
For the most part, people using Maverick might need this if they are using Vista or only have N-Trig Touchscreen as their touch device. Currently Maverick does not have it working as of yet for those people.
Those using Lucid might like it if they are already using the 05/04/2010 version that Rafi Rubin created. This is just building it inside dkms for you.
There should not be any additional packages to install as far as I know (besides aptitude for going back to the original version). It should be ready to go as long has you have used Hardware Drivers to install fglrx or install a Broadcom driver. If you do find that there is a package missing, let me know and I will update this.
Change over to the /usr/src directory:
Download the package:
sudo wget http://linuxfans.keryxproject.org/packages/ntrig/dkms/lucid/ntrig-20100504.tar.bz2
sudo wget http://linuxfans.keryxproject.org/packages/ntrig/dkms/maverick/ntrig-20100504.tar.bz2
Extract the package:
sudo tar -xvjf ntrig-20100504.tar.bz2
Add the module:
sudo dkms add -m ntrig -v 20100504
Build the module:
sudo dkms build -m ntrig -v 20100504
Install the module:
That is it! After that, each time a new kernel is updated, it will automatically run it for you. If you don't want to use it anymore:
sudo dkms install -m ntrig -v 20100504
Remove the kernel module from the system:
sudo dkms remove -m ntrig -v 20100504 --all
If you don't have aptitude installed:
sudo apt-get install aptiutde
Rebuild the original kernel module:
I chose to use aptitude here only because I know that it can reinstall a package for you. I am not for sure if there is an equivalent in apt-get or through Synaptic.
sudo aptitude reinstall linux-image-$(uname -r)
