Touchscreen changing usb event device on power on/off
(was USB devices powering off in Linux)
I have done some more investigation into my usb touchscreen becoming unresponsive when I turn it off and back on.
When my PC boots up the usb touchscreen is assigned event1.
When I power off the touchscreen and power it back on the usb touchscreen is reassigned event3.
This becomes a problem because my XF86Config-4 file has the CorePointer set to Device "/dev/input/event1". When the device changes X can no longer use the usb touchscreen because the device is now "/dev/input/event3".
Does anyone know if there is a way to either always assign the same event # to a device, or to set X to use multiple Devices for the same pointer (two "Device" settings in the same pointer will just use the first)? Or maybe I am overlooking something?
