    Need N-trig DuoSense Touchscreen and fingerprint scanner fully functional

    Hi, I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop x64 on a HP TouchSmart tx2 notebook.

    Here are some things my screen can do: Track my pen and left click by using my finger.

    And here are some things I want it to do:
    Left click using my pen
    Support two finger inputs like right clicking using two fingers and resizing windows using two fingers

    Theres also a few problems I have with my touchscreen.
    Whenever I use my pen I am unable to left click using a mouse or my track-pad until I use my finger to left click.

    When I ran this command:
    Code:
    cat /sys/bus/usb/devices/*/product
    I got this:
    Code:
    USB2.0-CRW
    HP Webcam
    Fingerprint Sensor
    DuoSense
    EHCI Host Controller
    EHCI Host Controller
    OHCI Host Controller
    OHCI Host Controller
    OHCI Host Controller
    OHCI Host Controller
    OHCI Host Controller
    My fingerprint scanner is from DigitalPersona

    Is there anything I could do to get these things?

    Welcome!

    EDIT: I removed the portion about changing the stylus to a left-click. I mis-read the original message.

    As for your fingerprint scanner, you can try the following link. I am not for sure if you will need aes2501-wy or not. I will warn you that the last time I tried it out, the scanner still does not work too well in Linux. It takes one snapshot of your fingerprint and then tries to match as many points as it can so it does not always get a good match.

    For two finger gestures, it is not quite ready yet. The packages to test out gestures is utouch (those should be in 10.10). However, there is an application called GINN that is currently being worked on that will help "inject" gestures to applications.

    For your pen/touchpad issue, are you currently up to date on changes? Also, do you know what firmware version you are using for your touchscreen? If you don't know, do you know whether you last used Windows 7 or Vista on the laptop? Each firmware version acts a little differently in Linux.
