Draco,

Thank you for your response.  Do you have any technical documentation regarding the command protocol of your touchpads so that a Linux kernel developer may write a driver without having to reverse-engineer the protocols?

Regards,

Nik

Hello,

Your touch pads have no support in Linux. Would you please consider releasing drivers for your touch pads for Linux? Your latest multi touch devices almost don't work at all in Linux.
