I wouldn't worry about the calibration stage for now.
Or the xorg-dev, thing... I think debian/ubuntu packages are split into the binaries, the devel files, whatever. That doesn't happen in VL, and when you get a package, you get the whole kit and caboodle.
The step I don't understand is the video-nv driver as that's an nvidia driver. I don't know what that does, as your computer doesn't have an nvidia card (it's a trident one, right?). Weird.
Let's assume that driver isn't needed (at least for now). I'd say it is best to start from scratch and follow the instructions on the driver's webpage (http://www.conan.de/
) rather than those ubuntu ones.
The driver should perhaps be copied to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input instead of the drivers directory, but I don't know if that makes any difference.
Then edit your xorg.conf file as it says in the driver's webpage.
An explanation for why it's not working might be the device name.
It says there that the device name might be different in different distributions. So looking at the two webpages it seems the device might be:
Do you have any or several of these files??
