NB30 touchscreen in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat

Post by nb30 » 10/11/2010, 15:36

I'd been looking for info on how to get this working for a few days, but only found info referring to another touchscreen made by eGalax with product ID "0eef:0001" rather than "0eef:480e" which my NB30 reported.

However, I found a link that suggested the same fix would work for me, tried it and it did, so I thought I'd share this info here where I originally looked for it.

This was the key for me, and it shows how to test it will work without editing any files or having to reboot

They're saying to follow this earlier set of instructions but just swap the 0x1 code for 0x480e to make it permanent even after reboot:

Both those are in french, but as they are basically lists of command lines and lines to edit in files you can get the sense of it.

Here's another link I found in English for the 0x1 touchscreen

You might also want the link to the PPA for the xinput_calibrator tool to save compling. This spits out the settings needed to be added to xorg.conf.d:

The only differences from this advice I took was that I ran the calibrator to get the settings to add to the xorg.conf.d/ directory by adding the quirks with modprobe and I put the file in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ which seems to be a change of location for Maverick and is different from the one suggested by xinput_calibrator and the two different sets of instructions. Maybe those other places work too, but I thought I'd use the existing directory before creating a new one.
