Hidtouch driver version 10.05.23

24 May 2010 — 11:45

This new version compiles on recent systems (X.Org v1.7.6). The new features are the support for the screen rotation, and a compatibility mode for some multitouch touchscreens.

Files are available on the Sourceforge project page.

Thanks to people who have donated, it gave me the supplemental motivation to continue.

Hidtouch driver version 9.04.04

26 May 2009 — 08:00

It has been ready for a while, but I needed some time to write a decent user manual.

This version provide a better positionning, using data collected from the four corners for calibration.

A small tool has been packaged to ease collect data.

From now files are on the Sourceforge project page.

Thanks for the few people that gave a donation, it gave me a motivation burst to finish this version.

Almost done...

01 April 2009 — 00:00

The debugging was painful because I wanted to be too smart... but I finally got what I wanted. Even if it's not as perfect as I expected, It's quite satisfying.

Now I'm writing a better manual. And I have to package a small and crude but necessary tool to find out some of the driver setting.

If you are brave enough, all is on the SourceForge CVS server.

Hidtouch : some news and a roadmap

20 January 2009 — 09:30

I have not so much spare time in January, so the new version takes time to be written. However, I already could set up a SourceForge space, and the CVS is hosting the current version of the driver.


The next version of the driver will be more accurate in the cursor positionning. Then I will fix a problem when the screen is rotated using xrandr.

Then I will take time to produce a package for Ubuntu. I can support two other systems without reformating, so I plan to support debian and mandriva.

Sporniket Nostalgie Sans typeface v8.12

22 Decembre 2008 — 08:00

An old project started 3 years ago, but I could work seriously on it only this year.

The design is freely inspired by my old Atari ST system font, without being constrained by the 8×16 pixel matrix.

This typeface supports some iso-latin encoding (ISO-8859-1 et ISO-8859-15) and some general ponctuation sign.

Xorg driver for HID usb touchscreens

30 Octobre 2008 — 00:38

I recently bought a laptop based on Clévo TN120R. The touchscreen is seen by Linux as a regular HID device, not an input device.

Fortunately I could write a driver that take can handle the touchscreen. There is not click event yet but the cursor moves as expected.
