The tablet that will have multipoint support

by EEVa

My last article about the EEE Slate and its configuration with Debian is now obsolete on one point : the touchscreen. According to launchpad Ubuntu bugs, evdev is completely fit for the task whereas evtouch is really outdated.

A fix is announced for both normal behaviour and multipoint support as of linux kernel 3.3!
It is not soon to be in Debian stable, but the info warms my heart 😉 (back to Arch!)

See you in a few weeks to verify this info.
