Well the build is for a fleet deployment, hopefully. To be used by our truck drivers when they pickup and deliver loads. Plan on using a touchscreen through a web browser for them to input their data.
And yes I had given serious consideration to LinuxICE2. However, when Always Innovating confirmed that they will be using XFCE as their desktop and we have a couple Touchbooks on order for another part of the project it will it on the same platform.
We will have various other pieces completing the puzzle: WiFi Router, GPS, Cell Modem, and printer. The printer will be the next major challenge, in a week or two. Currently, putting some other software into deployment. Creating a button to give signal status through router and push data to the server. Also need to add a navigation feature, though haven't researched it in about a year. Completed a new mail server/IM server so we can reach people outside of office quickly. One more button to add to the computer. Maybe by end of July I can green light production.
I have even emailed the EETI guys, but am awaiting a response. Any ideas?
Unsungboxer: check and make sure the touch screen isn't pinched. It sounds like there is pressure on the touchscreen causing it to jump. I don't think this is a driver issue.
I'm using the kernel drivers with ubuntu 9.04 with my touch screen. http://www.where-does-this-wire-go.c...roblems-fixed/
I appreciate that idea. I followed the steps, and still having exactly the same issue! Anyone else have any ideas, or experiencing the same symptoms as me?
months later, I reinstalled 9.04. Blacklisted usbtouchscreen, and removed the xorg...evtouch package from synaptic package manager.
I did this over and over again, and while everything was calibrated, I was not able to click the mouse. It would just hover over, even right click, but no left click. I finally ran:
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and found a line I have never seen before: SkipClick = "1". I changed it to "0" and rebooted. Did the trick.
I am posting it because I have found no other reference to it, also at the rate in which I seem to reinstall ubuntu on my carpc, its good that I document this for myself :)
