Section "InputClass"
Identifier "evdev touchscreen catchall"
MatchIsTouchscreen "on"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
Driver "evdev"
Option "Calibration" "516 3428 3422 665"
EndSection

It now boots up to the homepage, but appears to hang. The touchscreen and mouse don't do anything, but the CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK keys turn
led lighting on and off on the keyboard
.
Have you got the exact approach? Please share the exact way if you can..

PM me your email address and I'll send you my latest docs that contains this and more. The same doc is posted on the Porteus website somewhere, but I have trouble finding it.

Here is the latest doc I created. It includes a chunk on touchscreens. I hope you find it useful.

Can someone post the v5.pdf on Porteus?
