egalax series Touchscreens
- I have a few UnyTouch 15" LCD TouchScreens. Here's how I got them to work.
- These instructions are the basic instructions included with the driver. If you get lost, follow those.
- My units are USB. If you have PS2 or Serial devices, follow the instructions included with the driver.
Downloading the drivers
- Drivers can be downloaded from http://22.214.171.124/web20/eg/drivers.htm.
- The driver I used (32bit) is http://126.96.36.199/web20/drivers/touch_driver/Linux/TouchKit-1.08.1227-32b-k26.tar.gz
- Here's how I did it. My MD is moon80, yours may vary. First, as root, ssh to your MD (from your core)
sudo ssh moon80
- now, make sure your in /root
- download the file (below is for 32bit)
- unarchive the file:
tar -xvvf TouchKit-1.08.1227-32b-k26.tar.gz cd TouchKit
Installing the drivers
- First, we have to copy the driver into the right place
cp egalax_drv.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input
- There are 2 main modifications to the xorg.conf file.
- first define the driver as an inputdevice. Add this section:
Section “InputDevice” Identifier “EETI” Driver "egalax" Option “Device” “usbauto” Option “Parameters” “/var/lib/egalax.cal” Option “ScreenNo” “0” EndSection
- Second, is to add this section to the serverlayout. Add this line to your [ServerLayout] section:
InputDevice "EETI" "SendCoreEvents"
- That's it for xorg.conf. Restart X, (simply reboot the MD is easiest)
Configuring the TouchScreen
- Once your MD comes back up, boot up KDE Desktop, and open a terminal.
cd /root/TouchKit sudo ./TouchKit
- This will load the touchkit configuration, allow you to calibrate the screen, etc.
- The download site has some beta drivers for xorg 1.3 / 32bit. From what I can see, it simply automates the above. I did not try them as this worked perfectly.
