    I tried the instructions quickly, it compiles, installs, runs but doesn't seem to do anything with either firefox or inkscape.

    Hi bobthebob1234,

    Did you use the patched or unpatched source code? Beyond verifying that you have a /etc/wishes.xml file I don't know what else to suggest. I have a link to a launchpad page that links to a bunch of the Maverick multitouch projects. I could try to find that if you want me to.

    I just followed the instructions on the link you posted. I didn't change anything. I'm pretty sure it loads the wishes list as when i run ginn it loads a load of stuff. I think it is trying to do something cos the whole system slows down. Other than that I haven't looked at it harder.

    Re: Need help with touchscreen

    I'm having trouble too to make a touchscreen work, in 11.04. It worked ok in 10.10 using evtouch but it seems that evtouch is not supported now...

    I configured a file under /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ but when I touch any point in the touchscreen it holds the click, instead of making it and releasing when you stop touching.

    What happened with evtouch? It worked flawlessly for me...
