X11R7.5 Released and tuio/tmd Packages

with 2 comments

As some of you are probably aware, X11R7.5 was released several weeks ago, which means that multi-pointer x will now be much more accessible in the near future depending on which distro you are using.  I use Arch Linux on my laptop and all of the new updates are available on the pacman repositories.  I have put together two PKGBUILD’s for both xf86-input-tuio and the tmd daemon and posted on the AUR, which you can download directly and do a makepkg, or you can simply use yaourt:

yaourt -S tmd-git
yaourt -S xf86-input-tuio-git

In preparation for the release of Fedora 12, which is coming out on Nov 17th, 2009, I will be getting packages together for that as well.

I’m still planning a video, but it’s sort of on hold until I can finish a multitouch panel I’ve been putting together.  I started it before GSoC ended, but I just haven’t had the time to finish it with school keeping me busy and without the necessary tools at my home.  I’m expecting to finish that sometime later this month.

I’ll keep everyone updated on any future advancements.

    • Awesome, this is great to hear! I’m surprised to hear about the gdl dependency, I’ll have to look into that.

      Thanks! 🙂
