View Full Version : [ubuntu] Help with whiteboard device

May 17th, 2010, 05:41 PM

I am trying to set up a device for use with ubuntu Lucid, the knuckleheads that support it only reply to me that they just support Ubuntu 9.04...

It's called eBeam projector, and it consists of a pen with some kind of sensor that communicates to a device that sits on the corner of a projection screen an is connected in turn with the computer.

The xorg.conf bit related to it under Ubuntu 9.4 is as follows:

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "ebeam"
Identifier "whiteboard-wand"
Option "Color" "wand"

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen "Default Screen"
InputDevice "whiteboard-wand" "SendCoreEvents"

I read that the support for this kind of hardware was moved to the kernel under Lucid, and the configuration now has to be done via udev. I have no clue on how to translate the above to the appropriate format, could someone please help?

Thanks in advance,
