New Video of Multitouch Couch Table

2011/11/21 1 comment

In preperation for the Open Hard- and Software Workshop (www.ohsw.de) in Munich on 2nd-4th December I created a new video of my multitouch couch table.

This time it runs Bodhi Linux 1.2.0

The disappearing PS3Eye

If you have the situation that after some minutes of inactivity the webcam disappears from your system (not displayed on lsusb), deactivate the usb powermanagement.

To do this make following: echo on > /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb[bus of usb port]/power/control

 

This blog post was entered on my multitouch couch table. ;-)

Switching disto, again …

Because of the buying of my Acer Aspire 1825PTZ I switched from Ubuntu to Gentoo to get the hardware working.
That was also the reason why I ported the uTouch stack to Gentoo. To use the nice multitouch screen :-).

But time changes and with 3 systems running Gentoo, it takes me too much time to keep them running.

Some weeks ago I found a distribution called Bodhi Linux. It is based on Ubuntu 10.04 and uses E17 as window manager.
This will be my new used distribution.

Sadly it used a rather “old” xorg server (version 1.9). So my first work is to get the normal 1.10 ported and the get also uTouch working there.
With this work, I will update my ebuilds and the patches to the 1.10.4 xorg version for Gentoo.
