I have finally managed to upload the video of my presentation at the Open Hard & Software Workshop.
Yesterday was the first day of two of the Open Hard- and Software Workshop (www.ohsw.de) in Munich. My first reason to attend it, was to meet the guys from the GTA04 project again. But now I am presentating my LCD Multitouch table there.
The day started with a presentation of Nikolaus Schaller about the status of the GTA04 project.
After him, I had my presentation. You find the slides here: OHSW Präsentation MultiTouch Couch Tisch.
There will be also a video of it, but I didn’t looked at it to see how good it is. If it is ok, I will upload it to Youtube.
At the afternoon, we also saw a presentation about SHR, the programming language Vala and an extension board for the Freerunner for RFID/NFC.
In the evening we sat together and had nice chats about various open source topics.
Let’s have a look, what the second day will bring.
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
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. 😉
I recognized that I promised a video of Windows 8 in multitouch action.
Here is is:
At the weekend I finished the look of my multitouch couch table.
Here are some pictures from it:
Stay tuned for more infos about it.
5 minutes ago, I pushed new ebuilds for Xorg 1.10.4 in my repository.
For a newer Xorg version, there will no ebuilds available until the uTouch guys port there stuff to that version.
Currently the next Ubuntu version 12.04 still uses Xorg 1.10.4, so this is looking bad at the moment.
But have fun with the new ebuilds and please report any problems with them.
