Trouble installing 'standard' touchscreen

Post by MarxBRC » 2011/08/29 14:10:45

I can't get this resistive touchscreen to work. The USB device 16e3:f9e9 is an ITM touch-panel on a LG T1910B. According to the usbtouchscreen module, it should be supported.

Googling this issue is not really helping, there are all sorts of problems and solutions, but no solution fit CentOS.

The usbtouscreen module is not loaded, unless I modprobe it. When modprobed, how can I see if attached to the device?

The next problem would be how to get it to work in X-windows. It seems like one should use an X-driver called evtouch_drv, that should connect to an 'event'-driver. But I can't seem to find any of those drivers in any CentOS RPM. Any poniters? If I download it separately, I do not understand where to configure it, as the included instructions does not fit CentOS.

Quite a mess, but if someone would just help me get on the track, I'd be greatfull!

p.s. I have gotten an eGalaxy device work on CentOS 5.5 earlier, I't thought this would be a no brainer.... :(
