I bought an Ortek Smart Pad, convinced that I could make it work on Ubuntu 10.04.
Cursor movement and left/right click works out-of-the-box, and dmesg knows it's there.
But alas, I have been unsuccessful in finding a way to make Ubuntu recognise multi touch gestures.
There are drivers for Windows XP which enable this feature, so I reckon it's doable.
I've been messing around with Xorg and Synaptics drivers for a couple of days now.
But the system still classifies the pad as a mouse, which of course has no multi touch capabilities.
The ideal way would be to make it behave exactly as the built-in touchpad on my laptop.
Do any of you have the slightest idea on how to approach this?
