The Intel ClassmatePC is supplied with a sonic pen and note taking application under:

  • MS Windows version
  • Linux version ( MetaSys )

This must be adapted to run on the Ubuntu version.

Requires the driver and application from Intel.

Release Note

  • New requirement.
  • Device specific.
  • Edubuntu for the ClassmatePC specific.
  • No impact on existing users of any previous Ubuntu version.


There is a requirement for Edubuntu to match the functionality of the existing software versions.

Use Cases

  • This software will provide the functionality required to take external input from the USB pen device and covert it into a electronic format that can be used in applications.
  • To be expanded after Intel response.

UI Changes

Will cover changes required to the UI, or specific UI that is required to implement this.

Code Changes

Will include an overview of what code needs to change, and any specific details required.



Test/Demo Plan

It's important that we are able to test new features, and demonstrate them to users. Use this section to describe a short plan that anybody can follow that demonstrates the feature is working. This can then be used during CD testing, and to show off after release.

This need not be added or completed until the specification is nearing beta.

Outstanding Issues

  • Requires driver from Intel.
  • Requires application from Intel.
  • Requires analysis following response.

BoF agenda and discussion

  • Raised the requirements that need to be supplied by Intel with Jason Scott.
