    EeePC Touchscreen easiest installation

    DO MIND THAT I ONLY TRIED THIS WITH 9.10 EEEPC 1000H and TOUCHSCREEN VERSION 3.0X WITH UBUNTU KERNEL 2.6.X

    1. Go download the newest driver http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/eGalax...inuxDriver.htm and save it on the desktop



    2. Extract the file onto desktop. If you dont know how to, type the following exactly as it is in Terminal {The stars is whatever version you downloaded}
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    tar -xzvf eGalaxTouch-*.**.****-****-***.tar.gz
    3. Now you want to create an xorg.conf file
    Code:
     sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Then save as an empty document



    4. now navigate to the folder first
    Code:
     cd eGalaxTouch32
    Then run the setup
    Code:
     sudo sh setup.sh
    5. when the setup gets to "which interface controller do you use?" enter "3" and press enter.

    6. Wait for a while for it to run, then restart your computer.

    7. After your computer restarts, type the following
    Code:
     sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf~
    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    then you would want to type any random thing in the file. For example, i typed
    Code:
    #useless line
    8. Now remove the eGalax driver by typing
    Code:
     cd /Desktop/eGalaxTouch32
    sudo sh setup.sh uninstall
    9. Reboot


    10. Go into terminal and reinstall eGalax driver
    Code:
     cd Desktop/eGalaxTouch32/
    sudo sh setup.sh
    11. Restart one last time

    12. To calibrate, go to SYSTEMS>ADMINISTRATION>CALIBRATE TOUCHSCREEN

    13. Follow the onscreen instruction to calibrate the touchscreen

    EASY ENOUGH EH?

    NOTE: YOUR DEVICE SHOULD BE CALLED /dev/usb/hiddev0
    IF YOU CAN'T CLICK, GO TO THE XORG.CONF FILE AND CHANGE THE LINE "OPTION" "SKIPCLICK" "1" TO "OPTION" "SKIPCLICK" "0"
