    Y axis is OK, poke your finger at the screen and the mouse goes there (center of the screen). Up and down follows; side to side is reversed.

    Re: HOWTO : eGalax Touch Screen on Ubuntu 10.04

    Been trying desperately to get this to work on 11.04 with an Acer Iconia W500 (eGalax touchscreen) but no go. Gestures are never recognized, and the touchscreen only behaves like a simple mouse. It does work in Windows 7 with multitouch gestures. I could really use some help with this. No idea where to even begin troubleshooting, but I can provide any log or other output required.

    lumix, did you ever get multitouch working on the Acer Iconia Tab W500, I just ordered one, and plan to remove windows 7 right away.

    I have eGalax and followed samiux's guide (http://samiux.blogspot.com/2010/07/h...touchnote.html).
    Now the touchscreen is responding but it isn't behaving the way it should.
    I tried to use xinput_calibrator_x11 and now when I move x-directions it goes the opposite. When I move y-directions it doesn't point right under my finger.
    How do I correct this?
    (Acer A150 - 8,9' screen)
    (By the way how do I find my Ubuntu version? I often miss that)

    Okay. That was simple. I just moved around with the numbers like this:
    xinput set-prop --type int --format 32 "eGalax Inc. Touch" "Evdev Axis Calibration" 1938 57 162 1979

    (I purchased from VisualTouchWorld.com. They provide a driver which unfortunetely doesn't find my card.)

    @clauswilson

    Can you please simplify the fix that worked for you!!! - as per your last post.
    A step-by-step help will greatly help me in fixing my touch screen with calibration that never worked since i upgraded to Natty. (My touch worked perfectly on Karmic - and it works perfectly on my other boot of Windows 7 even now...as i write)

    thanks.

    Consider a clean install of oneiric (ubuntu 11.10) instead of upgrading (backup the important stuff in your home first though). The "input" parts of ubuntu have been changing in almost every release the past few years. And if you use exotic input devices (touchscreens etc.), the settings of the old ubuntu can mess up the updated ubuntu.

    Code:
    xinput set-prop --type int --format 32 "eGalax Inc. Touch" "Evdev Axis Calibration" 1938 57 162 1979
    Sets the input properties ("Evdev Axis Calibration") for the "eGalax Inc. Touch" device.

    For more info on xinput see:
    http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/.../xinput.1.html

    Note that changes you make using xinput don't persist after rebooting, so you will have to put it in a boot script (or login script).

    Re: HOWTO : eGalax Touch Screen on Ubuntu 10.04

    Hi!

    Had anyone tried this with 11.10 on a Dell Duo? I will try next week, and would like to know if it works...

    How can I setup the 11.10 and maintain the 10.10 (I have not upgraded to 11.04).

    Yes, but I have the resistive version of the eGalax touch screen (ASUS T101MT, USB ID 0eef:480d). I believe your dell has the capacitive version.

    Only problem so far is that, out of the box, only one finger clicking works. No right click menu or two finger scrolling. But I've only installed it for a few hours and haven't used it much. Still need to work on rotating the display and the touchscreen.

    How can I setup the 11.10 and maintain the 10.10 (I have not upgraded to 11.04).
    You can make a dual boot, or triple boot, if your already dual boot with windows. It boils down to creating another partition for a separate linux (you can "reuse" the swap partition). I'm sure you can find info on how to do it in this forum or at help.ubuntu.com/community
