I finally did a complete purge of the evtouch package (which includes the 50-eGalax.fdi
file) and reinstalled it -- hal now reacts to this file. Now to work on calibration,
the calibration app works but on reboot the evtouch settings are lost. Actually, not
lost -- just not set when GDM starts up. If I run the evtouch script in the /etc/init.d/
folder and restart the X server the calibration settings work.
I'll get this thing working yet...
