the main package that you'll likely need is utouch-evemu. Not sure if that's
packaged in debian. afaict, for the gtest sources, well, you need the actual
sources somewhere locally and point configure to it.

atm it's less of a driver testing and more of an expansion of the existing
unit tests. too many of them require a fully set up cursor to check for
certain tests and that's not easy to do without running the actual server. I
really consider the integration tests XTS-like. don't expect XTS to be
ported to gtest tough :)
