Touchscreen and drivers

Post#1 by SVblue » 11 Aug 2017, 08:33

I tried a Mikka-touchscreen (3M USB Touchscreen - EX II driver) but the calibration is not perfekt at the borders.
Are there any Touchscreens which are working well? Witch Drivers are included in KIOSK and are working well?

Hello SVblue,

Two things to note:
1) We cant guarantee anything in relation to the hardware as we do not write drivers. Before you buy anything you must query manufacturers directly as they know the best which model works with with Linux and which does not.
2) People usually contact me when something does not work rather to say this model works ok.

I have created several customized builds for POS touchscreens which utilize older 'serial' connection over 'usb'. Never heard any complains about bad calibration.
I have used 'inputattach' utility to get them working:
https://manpages.debian.org/wheezy/inpu ... .1.en.html

Any hardware with serial connection and ELO, Fujitsu, Penmount touch controller should be good.
Seems that inputattach supports also MicroTouch (3M) touchscreen so you may give it a go (blacklist or remove original usb driver first).

Thank you.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
