    Re: Ubuntu on Eee PC T101MT

    never mind - found this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libfakekey0 matchbox-keyboard
    inside gconf-editor:

    set /apps/gnome-screensaver/embedded_keyboard_enable=TRUE

    set /apps/gnome-screensaver/embedded_keyboard_command="matchbox-keyboard --xid"

    (found here

    I'm going to give it a shot with florence (my virt keyboard of choice) to see if that works as well...
    sudo apt-get lost

    Thumbs up Re: Ubuntu on Eee PC T101MT

    Hello!
    I have just brought new (2 Gen) T101MT with dual-core Atom N570.
    In lsusb output I have:

    Touchscreen works OOTB in single-touch mode. Touchrotate script works. Mic and sound are OK. Camera is upside-down, fixed. Two finger scrolling on touchpad working.

    Twofing 0.0.9b works after editing Idproduct in udev rule:
    Code:
    cat /etc/udev/rules.d/70-touchscreen-egalax.rules 
    BUS=="usb",ACTION=="add",KERNEL=="event*",SYSFS{idProduct}=="0186",SYMLINK+="twofingtouch",RUN+="/bin/chmod a+r /dev/twofingtouch"
    See twofing.txt log. Output of 'udevadm info --attribute-walk --name=/dev/usb/hiddev0' is in udevadm_usb-hiddev0.txt, of 'udevadm info --attribute-walk --name=/dev/twofingtouch' is in udevadm_twofingtouch.txt. Twofing 0.0.9a does not work.

    @jeebustrain
    I tried to replace matchbox keyboard with onboard one for gnome-screensaver:
    Code:
     /apps/gnome-screensaver/embedded_keyboard_command="onboard --xid"
    or from onboard-settings utility.

    @all
    But I have a problem. When I am trying to enter password in gnome-screensaver I can't do that (with both matchbox or onboard). If I press a key of virtual keyboard once, I give many instances of its symbol in the password prompt. So I can't login without transforming tablet.
    I discovered a solution: when I do not use twofing daemon, I can enter password letter by letter. But I do not want to go back to single-touch. What do you think?
    UPD: on-screen keyboards are unusable in normal Unity session too. I'll try Ubuntu Classic Gnome.
    UPD2: on-screen keyboards are unusable in Ubuntu Classic Gnome too.

    @Plippo
    Do you know about mtview? With help of it I saw that touchscreen is working in multitouch mode normally.

    Post UTouch on Eee PC T101MT

    After long time of googling and trying I discovered that UTouch is usable on T101MT(at least on mine). with Ubuntu 11.04.

    I wrote small HOWTO:
    1. Install xserver-xorg-input-evdev package with ubuntu patches:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-evdev=1:2.6.0-1ubuntu12
    It is recommended to Pin/Lock its version in Synaptic: Package->Lock version.
    2. Install the latest version of Ginn and multitouch touchscreen driver:
    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:utouch-team/utouch
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ginn utouch utouch-geis-tools hid-multitouch-dkms
    3. Reboot. In lsmod | grep hid you will have both hid_mosart and hid_multitouch modules.
    4. Run geistest. If everything is OK you will see something like this:
    Code:
    geistest 
    Device 10 added
        attr "device name" = "AsusTek, Inc. MultiTouch(TTI)"
        attr "device id" = 10
        attr "direct touch" = true
        attr "independent touch" = false
        attr "device touches" = 20
        attr "Abs MT Position X 0 min" = 0.000000
        attr "Abs MT Position X 0 max" = 3478.000000
        attr "Abs MT Position X 0 resolution" = 0
        attr "Abs MT Position Y 1 min" = 0.000000
        attr "Abs MT Position Y 1 max" = 3478.000000
        attr "Abs MT Position Y 1 resolution" = 0
    Device 14 added
        attr "device name" = "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
        attr "device id" = 14
        attr "direct touch" = false
        attr "independent touch" = false
        attr "device touches" = 4
        attr "Abs MT Position X 0 min" = 1472.000000
        attr "Abs MT Position X 0 max" = 5624.000000
        attr "Abs MT Position X 0 resolution" = 0
        attr "Abs MT Position Y 1 min" = 1408.000000
        attr "Abs MT Position Y 1 max" = 4754.000000
        attr "Abs MT Position Y 1 resolution" = 0
        attr "Abs MT Tracking ID 2 min" = 0.000000
        attr "Abs MT Tracking ID 2 max" = 65535.000000
        attr "Abs MT Tracking ID 2 resolution" = 0
    You can try zooming and rotating in Eye Of GNOME. It should work.
    Press Ctrl+C in geistest terminal.
    5. For better experience it's useful to set Edge Scrolling of touchpad:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/touchpad/scroll_method --type=int 1
    6. Add gesture for right mouse click on touchscreen. Replace two first lines with the following:
    sudo gedit /etc/ginn/wishes.xml
    Code:
    <ginn>
      <global>
    <!-- Right button click -->
        <wish gesture="Tap" fingers="2">
          <action name="action70" when="update">
            <trigger prop="tap time" min="20" max="400"/>
            <button>3</button>
          </action>
        </wish>
    Full wishes.xml is in attachment. You can customize it it with help of man ginn.
    7. Logout and login again.
    8. Enjoy!

    Please try this howto. Does it work for you?

    UPD: Ekoore has launched 3 tablets and released Ubuntu 11.04 based LiveCD. Multitouch on T101MT does not work out the box does not work from LiveCD. GINN wishes.xml is in attachment ekoore_wishes.xml.

    Re: Ubuntu on Eee PC T101MT

    Like you, I couldn't get the touchrotate script to work with the ExpressGate button. However, when I use your script - which rotates very nicely - the touch input does not sync with the screen. Any thoughts?

    I have a second gen...
    lsusb:
    0486:0186 ASUS Computers, Inc.
    xinput list:
    AsusTek, Inc. MultiTouch(TTI) id=10

    Thanks!


    p.s. Thanks to everyone for developing this thread. My eee is almost at 100%

    I needed to edit the touchrotate script to get the correct device for mine as it didn't quite extract the id correctly.

    in your case it looks like it should be 10.

    /usr/bin/touchrotate

    Either amend to INPUTDEV=10 (from auto) near the top of the file or see if you need to tweak the regex that matches it automatically. For me changing
    Code:
    grep -o 'id=[^ ]*'
    to
    Code:
    grep -o 'id=[^ ]*[0-9]'
    fixed it for me as the extra " [slave" was being matched as well.

    LMK and apologies if that goes over your head. only got my T101MT yesterday so I'm just setting this up now.

    Re: Ubuntu on Eee PC T101MT

    Thanks for the help but that didn't work. Just as an fyi, I also installed utouch and the associated libraries. I don't know if that might be interfering. Thoughts?

    Thanks again

    Hi, does anyone have the rotate working with the expressgate button on Natty? It doesn't work for me (first gen) as mentioned here. Would appreciate help on getting it working.

    To debug, I tried the `acpi_listen -c 1` command, and when I press the express gate button, I get nothing. Thanks.

    Re: UTouch on Eee PC T101MT

    Thanks to N0rbert for the instructions on how to install uTouch on the T101MT. I got it working on mine. However, there's two small problems with my setup. The touchscreen is not very responsive and my touch pad is much too responsive. Plus, the touchpad sometimes inputs letters (mostly "e" and "w") into text fields. I was hoping to improve sensitivity on the touchscreen while disabling or decreasing sensitvity on the touchpad. Are there any tools that can help me do this?

    Re: Ubuntu on Eee PC T101MT

    First of all, i'd like to thank you for your great work!
    Then i need some help with my Express Gate button..

    I'm on Lucid with 2.6.35-25-generic kernel, i've followed all the istructions in the ubuntu documentation and i've also read the whole thread but i still can't make my screen rotate by pressing that button...

    I can't install eeepc_acpi_workaround because it isn't for lucid but i've changed grub.cfg adding "acpi_osi=Linux", shouldn't it be enough?

    In addition, the ExGate button isn't even recognized by xev...
    Someone could help me?
    thx and sorry for my english..

    Re: Ubuntu on Eee PC T101MT

    I've run into a bit of a snag with multitouch on Ubuntu 11.04. After geistest failed to detect my touchscreen, I tried to install twofing. The twofing process appears in the system, but it doesn't seem to want to work. I ran twofing --debug, and this is what I got:

    Input device name: "AsusTek, Inc. MultiTouch(YFO)"
    XInput device id is 10.
    Start calibration
    No calibration data found, use default values.
    X Error of failed request: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)
    Major opcode of failed request: 141 (XInputExtension)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 46 ()
    Serial number of failed request: 34
    Current serial number in output stream: 36
    For completeness, here is my lsusb output data:

    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    And here is my xinput -list data:

    ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=13 [slave keyboard (3)]
    ∼ AsusTek, Inc. MultiTouch(YFO) id=10 [floating slave]
    UPD: I ran twofing --debug again, and whenever I press on the screen, it says "Process fingers!" But the twofing daemon still has yet to work correctly. Any advice?
