More setting up

Today's progress: updating the touchscreen firmware. This had to be done in the WeOS side. Instructions came again from wetabz blog. Here's how to do it:

  1. Connect USB keyboard and mouse
  2. Boot to WeOS
  3. Open terminal
  4. Type the following commands:
    • cd Downloads
    • wget http://www.exopc.com/backstage/download/Support/TouchPanel_YFO_v1006h.zip
    • unzip TouchPanel_YFO_v1006h.zip
    • sudo mv YoungFast_11p6_24x43_72A1v1006h_f04_dsab_ASG.EGXP /usr/share/tiitoo/firmware
    • sudo eUpgrade -f /usr/share/tiitoo/firmware/YoungFast_11p6_24x43_72A1v1006h_f04_dsab_ASG.EGXP

That's it. You might have to run the last command again if it fails in the first try.

Then, I tried to install a proper multi-touch driver to Ubuntu. Instructions came from the same blog, but don't work quite the same in Ubuntu 11.04. Here's my variant of the procedure:

  1. Boot to Ubuntu
  2. Go to text console by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1
  3. Log in
  4. Give the following commands:
    • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:utouch-team/utouch
    • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:utouch-team/unstable
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get upgrade
    • sudo apt-get install hid-multitouch-dkms

However, after that the touch driver froze constantly, so in the end I decided to "sudo apt-get remove --purge hid-multitouch-dkms".
