A few people have asked me how to install the compiz multi-touch plugin so here is a quick guide (for recent editions of ubuntu). I’d like to thank all the developers who provided the original code and modifications for this plugin. I just consolidated their code, they did all the hard work.
Using the new multi-touch tables at Durham University provided by Ness Furniture we tried out the currently available multi-touch features of two operating systems. The first operating system is Windows 7 which comes with some simple multi-touch features, mostly mouse emulation and image manipulation.
I’ve recently made some corrections to the compiz multi-touch plugin so to test the change I installed the plugin on my netbook. However I can’t get access to any multi-touch podiums or tables. Infact the only multi-touch device I have access to is an iphone. Therefore I’ve decided to use an iphone touch to TUIO app.
