ACER 1825 enable “multitouch” (easy) install of touch driver in Ubuntu 10.10

By Christopher, February 18, 2011

Hey,

thanks to Tom he mentioned a working howto for installing the touch driver on Ubuntu 10.10.

http://lii-enac.fr/en/architecture/linux-input/multitouch-ubuntu-howto.html

I tried this guide after doing

1
2
3
apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

and rebooting and touch works fine. I also tried the gesturetest application from the utouch framework

like described here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Multitouch/Testing/UsingGesturetest and get nice looking Output.

But I don’t know, who I could use any multi touch/dual touch gesture with my Acer. Which applications supports it? Who has a hint?
