Native Linux kernel module and tools for eBeam pointing devices

From Wikipedia :

eBeam is an interactive whiteboard system developed by Luidia, Inc. that transforms any standard whiteboard or other surface into an interactive whiteboard.

Luidia provides an eBeam Education Suite for Linux.

This project provides a native way to use your device like a simple pointing device under Linux. It use a kernel module and 2 user-space tools :

Module : ebeam-module

The kernel module link the usb device to the input subsystem, creating a generic event device exposed to user space. Xorg’s evdev input driver automatically use it like a tablet.

User space : ebeam-tools

Warning : these 2 executables need to be setuid root. You should audit the source code and build it on your own system before using it.
