Package: xserver-xorg-input-evtouch
Version: 0.8.7-3ubuntu1
Severity: minor

*** Please type your report below this line ***
Looking at evtouch.c it seems that the default value of the MoveLimit
option is 180. I don't know the first thing about X drivers, but it
seems to me that with recent changes (to make the driver compatible
with the latest xorg release) the unit of this option is pixels.
This basically means that when using the default options you have
to move the cursor more than 180 pixels before the move is registred.
This is at least what happens on my system. I recommend lowering the
default value. I'm using a value of 5, which still might be a bit too

BTW. are you guys in contact with the upstream author of the driver? It
seems that the debian version has diverged quite a bit from upstream.
So far actually that only the debian version works on any modern
