Do you have any idea of how many different display/touchscreen combinations there are?

hi,

the display is via the hdmi port.

touch screen is via usb and requires usctouchscreen.c but there is no tutorial on how to intergate this.

any help would be great

Not enough information. What is the output of lsusb?
Do you have a link to a datasheet or at least more info on the touchscreen?

Gr.
Dirk.

It would be best if you posted a link to his specific touch controller... or at least the lsusb output

hi thanks for the replys, here is my lsusb. The monitor in question is a ibm 4820-48t. the touchscreen works on win7 , unbumtu 12.2 and the standard raspbmc install.

the touchscreen part is a 3m ex II and is listed in the usbtouchscreen.c file


thanks stuart

I don't think you'll be able to get that screen running on a Raspberry Pi. The driver includes closed source programs that are only built for Intel X86 systems. If you can't find a driver specially built for ARMv6 systems then you have absolutely no hope of getting it running.

He said it works with Raspbmc, so the driver ought to exist in some form.

Just had a look and Raspbmc comes with a whole bunch of touch drivers, including the one mentioned above.

You recompile the kernel with the "usbtouchscreen" module set to "enabled" I guess..

Edit 1:
( And if you feel the responses are a bit slow, its probably because of the really bad title on this thread. )

Edit 2:
And if you had put "usbtouchscreen.c" into the search field you would have found this thread:
