Subject: [gentoo-user] eGalax Touchscreen
Date: Sat, 27 Feb 2010 17:47:07
1 Hi list:
3 My netbook has a eGalax Touchscreen. Does anyone have experience with
4 them?
6 (a) I first tried their driver at
8 but it crashes the computer when logging out from X. I may play with
9 it a bit more to see if I am doing something stupid.
11 (b) Right now the usbtouchscreen kernel driver sees the touchscreen. I
12 installed xorg-server with the tslib USE, ad added tslib to the input
13 devices in make.conf. Does anyone have experience with tslib?
15 ts_finddev tells me that /dev/input/event6 is a touchscreen.
16 ts_print_raw shows events coming in when I touch the stylus to the
17 screen.
19 But ts_calibrate, ts_test, ts_harvest all do nothing. I run them, they
20 display their texts and cross-hair, but no matter where I touch on the
21 screen nothing happens.
