Asus launched a really nice gadget called the EeeTop ET1602 (There's also a ET1603, with a battery and another thing, but that's for a premium).

LinuxMCE would run nicely on this thing, if it weren't for the screen turning off when X starts with the intel driver. Ironically, it works fine with the vesa driver.

The touchscreen works perfectly with the evtouch driver. The calibration data seems to be stored in the device itself, and the calibration utility is Windows-only, but it shouldn't need any refining unless you want pixel-perfect touching.

My xorg.conf looks like this right now (The changes relevant to the Eee Top are in bold):

udev could be taught to create a symlink to the touchscreen device, so you don't have to keep track youself, removing the need to update xorg.conf at boot as well.

Something like this, in a file called /etc/udev/rules.d/69-touchscreen.rules, could probably do the trick.

KERNEL=="event*", SUBSYSTEM=="input", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1bfd", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1688", SYMLINK+="input/evtouch"
