The project https://launchpad.net/nwfermi seems pretty dead. Last update was eight years ago.
Even the related web page http://www.nextwindow.com is not active any more (shows a "parked domain" page)

I have patched this driver for correct scaling as button device and even for multitouch version of this driver. Where i can publish this driver for the best effort? It may be an a GitHub, or a Launchpad platform, but i'm not familiar with Lanchpad PPA repository.

I hav uploaded patched library to the own site. You can check sources and build it from the sources for bionic and upper, tested on linuxmint 19 with touchegg daemon.

@morganhold would you create a noob guide to install this driver from scratch? or should we apply to this page? https://github.com/glorang/nwfermi

Can you help with this problem?
