    I'm having the same problem you had getting the touchscreen to work. There's info missing in the type and version fields, but I've tried reinstalling the software (like 8 times now) and its not helping. I got really excited when I found this thread because I thought for sure it'd work! I'm doing this all on my mini installed in my truck. Have you tried setting this up with your mini yet?

    Any suggestions?

    are you having problems with getting the touchscreen registration to work properly or getting the screen to display at all with the Mac Mini?

    I'm having trouble with the touchscreen part, the display works fine otherwise. I haven't yet tried the 800x480 adjustment (which I found on MacVroom) so everything is still a little squished at 800x600, but its still very useable.

    I'm seeing basically the same thing that you saw before you reinstalled the driver, under "Interface" I get something like "USB2093b00", your number was a little bit different, maybe its a device ID? I'm wondering if there's a way to do a complete uninstall of the TouchKit driver? Any ideas? I can't find an option to do that in the installer.

    Ah...yes. All we did was run the installer again and rebooted. However, we HAVE NOT tried it on the Mac Mini (picking that up in NH today as a matter of fact).

    Will try that this week and let you know how we made out. As we did more voice interface testing...we are becoming less concerned with the touchscreen. It is likely that we'll try to do as much with voice as possible. The car is of the few places where voice input is actually less "dorky" than say... your local Starbuck :-)
