Usage Information

The Stylistic 3500 is a Pentium 2, 400mhz powered, touchscreen computer.

Running as an Orbiter

Works very nice with the Windows orbiter and an additional W-LAN card.

Running as a (limited) Media Director

To get it running as a Media Director, capable of playing audio, and controlling other Media Directors, a couple of things have to downloaded and configured after the initial Media Director boot.

Setup Touchscreen

The touchscreen is an FPIT compatible touchscreen. To get the driver, do an

apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-fpit

Also, we need to work with the serial port, so we need

apt-get install setserial

After that, the xorg.conf needs to be configured manually.

First, we add the new input device in xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
   Identifier "Touchscreen"
       Driver "fpit"
       Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"
       Option "BaudRate" "9600"
       Option "Passive"
       Option "CorePointer"
       Option "MaximumXPosition" "4070"
       Option "MaximumYPosition" "4020"
       Option "MinimumXPosition" "0"
       Option "MinimumYPosition" "0" 
EndSection

Next we add this input section to the ServerLayout section.

Section "ServerLayout"
       Identifier      "XFree86 Configured"
       Screen    0     "Screen0"       0 0
#       InputDevice     "Mouse0"        "CorePointer"
       InputDevice     "Keyboard0"     "CoreKeyboard"
       InputDevice     "Touchscreen"
EndSection

No need for the mouse anymore.

Now reboot your media director, and see if everything works.

Troubleshooting

If nothing happens when you touch the screen, try another /dev/ttyS, for example /dev/ttyS3

Small Things

The PC is not capable of playing videos. You might want to delete the automatically generated scenario Video from the room, the media director is assigned to.
