This is the main how-to

I think you should also install the following modules before starting the installation:

sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant

If you want to check if everything works correctly use hdaps-gl from hdaps-utils package. This is the simple opengl application that displays laptop position in real-time.

and change the SENSITIVITY line. The higher value means less sensitivity.

To restart the hdapsd execute following command

sudo /etc/init.d/hdapsd restart
