    Xenarc touchscreen drivers on Ubuntu

    Has anyone successfully installed the Xenarc drivers on Ubuntu? If so, could you post a step-by-step instruction?

    I have a Xenarc 700TSV and I'm using Ubuntu 8.04. I downloaded the 2.6 kernel drivers from here http://www.xenarc.com/driver-touch1.html and I tried following the instructions no to avail. I'm not quite sure which method to use.

    I know the touchscreen works because I can click/double click but it only does it where the mouse pointer is.

    Part of my xorg.conf:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
          Identifier      "EETI"
          Driver          "egalax"
          Option         "Device"            "/dev/input/event4"
          Option         "Parameters"      "/var/lib/egalax.cal"
          Option         "ScreenNo"        "0"
    EndSection
    ...
    Section "ServerLayout"
           Identifier     "Default Layout"
           Screen        "Default Screen"
           InputDevice "EETI"      "SendCoreEvents"
    EndSection
    Like I said, I've tried several different options in the Option "Device"... /dev/usb/hiddev0, /dev/input/mouse1, etc. None seem to work.

    Here's the relevant info in /proc/bus/input/devices:
    Code:
    I: Bus=0003 Vendor=0eef Product=0001 Version=0112
    N: Name="eGalax Inc. Touch"
    P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.1-2/input0
    S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb2/2-2/2-2:1.0/input/input4
    U: Uniq=
    H: Handlers=mouse1 event4
    B: EV=1b
    B: KEY=401 30000 0 0 0 0
    B: ABS=f
    B: MSC=10
    Also, when I run the Touchkit Screen Utility I only get the "About" tab.

    Thanks for the help.

    First of all.. Make sure you have the egalax 2.x drivers direct from the EETI website..

    secondly, use HIDDEV(IMO the best option) for the device section just type hiddevs

    ex
    Option "Device" "hiddevs"

    I have never gotten TkUSB nor event interface working on a Xenarc :|

    Thanks kant, I downloaded the 2.03 drivers from here: http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/TouchK...inuxDriver.htm
    And ran the setup.sh file and it works now!
