[Bug 784990] Re: multitouch does not work in HP Slate 500


Is there a reason that evdev is kept back to 2.5.99? I compiled and
installed 2.6.0 and it seems to work OK (but the multitouch still isn't
working). Can someone let me know why this driver was downgraded as part
of the EMGD install? Is evdev 2.6.0 incompatible with xorg 1.9?

Update: the device ( /dev/input/event<#> ) seems to be generating
events. evtest and mtview are both succesful, though gesturetest and
ginn report nothing. See also this thread:
