HP Touch Tx2z and Fedora …

Finally I got AMD Based Laptop and it is
Touch Screen Display, which is quite good
for Windows Vista (Pre-installed), but Windows
Vista was too slow to use (most of Junk
Softwares, thanks to HP).
Finally I installed Windows 7 RC and Speed is quite good,
but not equal to Dell Studio XPS 13 with Intel
Core 2 Duo P8600 (2.4Ghz) (HP has DDR2
and Dell has DDR3) even difference is
not big enough to feel in first look.

My Final Target to get install Fedora or Linux
on HP tx2z, first I tried Fedora 11 (x86_64), which
install quite easy and during installation pointer
moved by touching the screen, but Click
was not working.
Fedora 11 installed, pointer moved, but
Click was not working. Finally Upgrade
that to rawhide (Fedora 12 pre-release),
but that is NOT Working at all. Even wonder
was that there was no /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
at all. But GUI was working. with
system-config-display, xorg.conf file generated
To Fix the issue, I used Ubuntu Website,
where they fixed Xorg.conf file to fix issue
Following Steps I used for it

1) /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/20thirdparty/10-wacom.fdi

 


wacom
stylus


Changed to

  <!-- N-Trig Duosense Electromagnetic Digitizer


wacom
stylus

-->

2) N-trig Symlink
edit (create New file)

/etc/udev/rules.d/90-n-trig.rules 

and add following line

KERNEL=="event*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1b96", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0001", SYMLINK="input/n-trig"

3) Finally my ‘xorg.conf‘ (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) is here
——

# Developed with Ayuthia (using Rafi Rubin’s Wacom sections as a starting point).

(ya, I have not developed, but all step are from Ubuntu site, for Detail
instruction you can visit here)

Just for Information: I have Windows 7 Firmware Updated.

Next testing I would like to go for OpenSUSE, which has
ability to configure Touch Screen Dispaly within YaST, while
Fedora Has Nothing for try.

Fingerprint reader I failed to Configure in Windows 7 as well
as in Fedora Rawhide. Work continue if get some fix.
