Can I use multitouch with my ThinkPad X220t (Wacom)?

Asked by Jonas Jelten on 2012-04-06


I've got a Thinkpad X220t with an amazing Wacom screen.

It supports pen and touch, even multitouch.

At the moment, the multitouch stuff is handled by the wacom driver, but scrolling and right clicking is a nightmare.

Is it possible to turn the touchscreen into a "normal" but absolute synaptics touch pad?
Can I use the awesome multitouch features of the new X server and evdev?

I think any driver can handle scrolling, zooming and right clicking better than the wacom driver...

Thanks for a reply,

Jonas Jelten

Don't you have an answer to such a relatively easy question?

ok, now how do i achieve this functionality shown in the video?

Jonas Jelten (jonas-jelten) said : #5

The program shown in the video is mtview, just saying.

The X220t Multitouch stuff is being discussed on the wacom mailing list now, so i consider this question as solved (as mtview shows that multitouch is possible).
