i am running debian at fr with xdm/xfce/sebastians tslib-patch and
visible cursor on 8G sandisk-SD.
simple clicks are no problem, but right-click is a little bit tricky
sometimes due to the cursor jiggling around the steady stylus aprox
has someone an idea to stop this jiggling somehow?
another thing is (at least for me) not proper working suspend.
i installed kenel/modules from http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily/
freerunner/200808/20080824 so i get a proper output in /proc/apm and
invoking 'apm' gives also proper output.
what actualy doesn't work is suspending via 'apm -s'.
gui is freezing but that's all ..
i can still connect via ssh/wlan and in 'ps aux' i can see a process
'apm -s' just sitting around doing nothing
i'd love to hear how to solve this .. :)
best regards, morlac
