This should have been built into Raspbian long ago IMHO. It supports 10 finger touch, hardware wise. But all you can do software wise is give it the finger. Nice tutorial, but you shouldn't have to jump through hoops just to have a simple right click function with an official Pi foundation sanctioned device? Its 2016 already.

I very rarely use the touch part of my screen, as its not really very useful. Why start there if you have to switch to another pointing device anyway? :roll:

I've been looking at touchscreen stuff recently, if I have time will look at this.

However, I am very busy.

Might be worth adding a github issues so I don't forget.
