  1. #1

    Default Help me with touchscreen please...

    Had it working in Ubuntu and now Ive switched to openSUSE and loving it! Much better than Ubuntu. But I cant get the touchscreen working. Please help...Ive tried to get it working but assume I have done nothing please. Im semi-intelligent when it comes to linux but most of my experience has come from Ubuntu. Here is a Ubuntu page on getting it working if this helps.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/T101MT

    Im kernel 2.6.34-12 and using openSUSE 11.3 (32 bit) If you need anymore info please ask. Thanks for any help

    Also im sorry if I put this in the wrong place.

    You forgot to mention which touchscreen/computer you have.
    But looking at the link I assume you've got an ASUS Eee PC T101MT Tablet PC?

    The link is in this case useless.
    But what you need to do is download the driver from here: eGalax_eMPIA Technology Inc. TouchKit Linux Driver
    Not sure which one you need but I've read a thread where they say you need the beta: openSUSE 11.3 and eGalax TouchScreen

    I don't have a touchscreen myself, so I couldn't test it.
    I recommend you try downloading the driver, read the thread carefully.
    There's most likely a README or INSTALL file in that package, maybe that's usefull?

    Best of luck!
    Where did I put my coffee cup?
    dir -R /home/* | grep "coffee cup"

    Did you get the touchscreen working?

    I'm considering getting one of these in lieu of one of the Android tablets scheduled to be out this fall.
