Hi!

Thanks for the tutorial!
I would like to have xserver and xbmc runing at the same time(and I have this). Do you know how can I minimize/hide xbmc to show xserver app? I need to have this without restarting the PI.

Re: Touchscreen XBMC Tablet Rpi Issue

Hi!

I have found a solution, but it implies some code patching and recompile of XBMC.
I have a tutorial for all:

These patches should work with all touch screens not only eGalax or 7 inch.
