And the touchscreen goes in over USB.piglet wrote:well, it's got an hdmi input...
Well usually this just means they don't supply the software to go with the device, or that there is no software required. I'd be very surprised if they released this monitor "Designed" for the RPi when it couldn't be used with it.mahjongg wrote:Are you sure that when they say "software:none", it doesn't mean no software is available?
I'm having trouble with this installation note. Can someone help me? ThanksKernel wrote:dan3088 said:
What are the chances touch kit would just give me the source code lol
I"m guessing that touch screen interface would be high up on peoples wish list for the system and the four wire touch membranes are pretty cheap so hopefully some one will work it out
depends what their stance on open source is - if they haven't already done it they probably won't unless they suddenly think they are going to sell a load to pi users by doing this - they would be more likely to compile the correct drivers though if there is enough demand
actually looking at http://www.touchkit.com/proi/d.....20Note.pdf
it seems to have source code and mentions things like 'make install' so I think it is possible and the ubuntu tar file has things like MAKEFILE
1. Please extract the driver source code firstly. Unzip “debian.tar.gz” to a
temp working folder.
2. Enter terminal mode and change to root account by this command. ( su )
3. Rebuild the TouchKit driver.
3.1) Locate the extracted directory. And go to the subdirectory
/touchkit/include then type make new
3.2) change the directory to /touchkit then type make all
The touchKit driver will be rebuild. ( Some packages must be
installed and well configured ).
3.3) type make install to begin to install at the same directory /touchkit
4. Edit the daemon configuration file “/etc/tpaneld.conf” if there is no device
port you want. The configuration should contain some parameters
description as below
MouseMode = DRAWING
DblClickSpeed = 18
DblClickArea = 30
RclickTool = 0
Sound = 0
Port = /dev/ttyS0
Port = /dev/ttyS1
Port = /dev/psaux
Port = /dev/tkpanel0
Port = /dev/tkpanel1
The daemon tpaneld will scan the ports list in the configuration file to
check if touchscreen controller exists or not.
/dev/tkpanel0 and /dev/tkpanel1 are used for USB model.
