Hidtouch driver version 10.05.23

24 May 2010 — 11:45

This new version compiles on recent systems (X.Org v1.7.6). The new features are the support for the screen rotation, and a compatibility mode for some multitouch touchscreens.

Files are available on the Sourceforge project page.

Thanks to people who have donated, it gave me the supplemental motivation to continue.

Hidtouch driver version 9.04.04

26 May 2009 — 08:00

It has been ready for a while, but I needed some time to write a decent user manual.

This version provide a better positionning, using data collected from the four corners for calibration.

A small tool has been packaged to ease collect data.

From now files are on the Sourceforge project page.

Thanks for the few people that gave a donation, it gave me a motivation burst to finish this version.

Hidtouch : some news and a roadmap

20 January 2009 — 09:30

I have not so much spare time in January, so the new version takes time to be written. However, I already could set up a SourceForge space, and the CVS is hosting the current version of the driver.


The next version of the driver will be more accurate in the cursor positionning. Then I will fix a problem when the screen is rotated using xrandr.

Then I will take time to produce a package for Ubuntu. I can support two other systems without reformating, so I plan to support debian and mandriva.

This version fixe the button clic, so the touchscreen is now usable. The next feature will be the error correction of the positionning.


Xorg driver for HID usb touchscreens

30 Octobre 2008 — 00:38

I recently bought a laptop based on Clévo TN120R. The touchscreen is seen by Linux as a regular HID device, not an input device.

Fortunately I could write a driver that take can handle the touchscreen. There is not click event yet but the cursor moves as expected.
