    Default Touchscreen won't work

    I have a new USB-Touchscreen, but it won't work. I'm a new openSUSE user so I have nearly no experience. Could you please help me?

    Here is the output of the lsusb-command:

    did the screen come with a disk?

    does it have a Linux driver?

    or maybe the instruction booklet includes a URL on where to get a
    Linux driver, and how to install it? (maybe)

    we can help you probably, if there is a linux driver for that screen..

    if not, maybe one of these has the details for other linux systems

    the screen came with a disk but there are only windows drivers on it

    if not, maybe one of these has the details for other linux systems

    Hi
    You need the latest driver from egalax, extract and run the script.
