Re: Ubuntu Multitouch Kernel Driver Development - Details and testing



Can I interact with the operating system like I do with a mouse? What event should I concern with?

Should I look to any example in particular in linux input source for touchscreens or any will do in general?

Good news. I have it working for multitouch already. At least qt example
finger paint is working perfectly.

Regarding to Mouse and Single Touch Digitizer. How will the operating
system make the distinction between mouse and multitouch?

What about the ubuntu unity? What kind of multitouch is natively supported?

Unless it is grabbed for other uses (eg. gestures), the system treats a
single touch as a pointer movement, so by default there is no
distinction between a single touch and a mouse.

Unity will grab all 3- and 4-touch actions and interpret them as
gestures.  1- and 2-touch actions are left for application use.
