    Multitouch X Driver v1.0-alpha2

    The alpha2 is now released, and can be found in the master branch of the git tree. Thanks to NinoScript for testing things out. The shortlog since last version is appended.

    Cheers!

    Re: new xf86-input for macbooks and other multitouch-touchpads.

    I am having a problem retrieving from git. It seems to start OK, but a few got's in I get the error:

    Code:
    error: Failed connect to bitmath.org:80; Operation now in progress (curl_result = 7, http_code = 0, sha1 = c7ed4cec501f10479a98e380d760670312101136)

    while processing commit 0587ab0488c46b61d175793f2deedc3a7aa9b600.

    Any ideas?

    Perfect, the dragging, horizontal scrolling is substantially better (and it was great already)

    Great job!

    Re: new xf86-input for macbooks and other multitouch-touchpads.

    OK, finally got things installed. I am running Karmic.

    I set the device in xorg.conf to be multitouch. What do I have to do to the 11-x11-synaptics.fdi to get this working?

    Thanks,
    -J

    Re: new xf86-input for macbooks and other multitouch-touchpads.

    hello,

    thank you for this improvement!

    i have a question regarding the installation.

    my system:
    macbook pro 5,5 (unibody 2009)
    ubuntu lucid lynx 10.04 daily with latest packages installed

    i installed xorg-dev in addition to other compiling and building stuff.
    after that i cloned your code from http://bitmath.org/git/multitouch.git.
    after - make && sudo make install (all went fine)
    i rebootet my system.

    if i check the /var/log/Xorg.0.log i see that the multitouch.so doesn't get loaded.
    does someone has a clue what to do?

    thank you!

    regards
    finy

    Re: new xf86-input for macbooks and other multitouch-touchpads.

    The git master branch is updated with patches for three bugs: one common, one rather common and one rare, all resulting in jumpy or jittery motion or scrolling. Overall, motion seems fine now.

    I looked a bit at tapping. It is not too hard to implement taps, double taps and tap-and-hold, but the major grief are all false positives associated with the tapping, even if delays and other related tricks are used. If someone comes up with a great and simple idea how to filter out thumbs, corner touches etc, I am all ears. Otherwise, I just cannot see how tapping could be useful to anyone...

    Cheers!

    That's a good question. I assumed that you have a replacement for the synaptics driver, which is my hardware. I'm beginning to think that there are two synaptics, a kernel module and and xorg driver. If so, then my problem is with the kernel synaptics, not the xorg synaptics that you are replacing.

    Is this correct?

    Quite so. If synaptics turns up when doing lsmod, you are running the kernel synaptics driver. What is your hardware, Vaio X?

    Vaio S. One of the new models. Interestingly enough, I don't have a synaptics driver loaded. This is probably related to the detection bug we are struggling with.

    Don't know if this is helpful but in Karmic I'm using this driver:

    It does have most of the multitouchfeatures as osx and tapping works as well
