Here at Ideum labs, we’ve been hard at work developing a new Linux driver for our MT Series multitouch tables and displays.
Beginning in March, Linux users and developers will be able to take full advantage of the gesture-driven, social features of MT55 Pro table, MT55 Platform table, and the new MT65 Presenter wall display with native multitouch and GestureWorks support for applications deployed in Ubuntu.
Running multitouch applications on our devices will be plug and play. Touch data from our driver will be exposed to both the TUIO protocol and by Linux’s native multitouch protocol. In the future, we plan to expand support to include the Linux X11 API’s, bringing full compatibility to both the Qt and GTK+ (Gimp toolkit) frameworks.
