I have finally managed to upload the video of my presentation at the Open Hard & Software Workshop.
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.
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.
