This guide is writte for my Acer 1825 but it should work on all linux devices which need a onscreen keyboard like onboard.
I got the idea of building this script from Tom/drnessie from the ubuntuforums.org (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1486671&page=17), because he tried to make a improvement of my onscreen keyboard show/hide script from this post.

In my last post I explained were you found a tutorial for installing a real multitouch driver for the ACER 1825 and said I don’t know how to use these multitouch support. Thanks to Tom/drnessie who recommended ginn to me.

thanks to Tom he mentioned a working howto for installing the touch driver on Ubuntu 10.10.
I tried this guide after doing::CODECOLORER_BLOCK_8::
and rebooting and touch works fine. I also tried the gesturetest application from the utouch framework

[UPDATE meanwhile you could get multitouch support, check http://www.ceh-photo.de/blog/?p=320]
So after some days of struggling with the touchscreen configuration I works very good (only singletouch).
The problem was out of the box the touchscreen is detected as a touchpad in ubuntu 10.10. It is a problem in the xorg-evdev driver (Version) 2.32. To fix this problem you need to patch the 2.32 or build and install a newer one.
