How I got multitouch working with qt5 and ubuntu 12.10 on a Acer Netbook (Aspire 1825PTZ):

  1. Installed qt5-sdk-rc1 from releases.qt-project.org/qt5.0/rc2/qt-linux-opensource-5.0.0-rc2-x86-offline.run
  2. git clone gitorious.org/qt/qt5.git qt5
  3. cd qt5/qtbase/src/platformsupport/input/evdevtouch/
  4. edit evdevtouch.pri, uncomment DEFINES += USE_MTDEV
  5. compile qt5 according to instructions in qt-project.org/wiki/Building_Qt_5_from_Git
  6. Installation/replace current libs:
  • cd ~/Qt5.0.0-rc1/5.0.0-rc1/gcc
  • mv lib lib.no_mtdev
  • ln -s ~/qt5/qtbase/lib/
