    Cheers

    Well, I'm still working on getting my touchscreen working. I've mostly been working on getting LinuxICE to work. While looking for some information about linux touchscreen drivers I found this http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Car_Computer#evtouch_Driver . The evtouch driver worked for my installation after doing that. However, you may need to add the line "Option "rotate" "ccw"" to your xorg.conf file under the touchscreen device section.

    Well, I've been using the guts from a Dell Latitude 610 with a P3 since a laptop already has ACPI power management and a backup battery built in.
