    Touch Screen Drivers for Jailbait on an I-opener


    Hi! I am trying to install a "Microtouch" capacitive touch screen with a Microtouch usb controller on a hacked I-opener running Jailbait linux on it.
    Does anyone know of any drivers to install this.
    Suggestions and ideas are welcome.

    What touchscreen model is it that you're tring to install? And what is an I-opener?! I've never heard of anything like that. Also, in what way is it hacked?

    I-opener/Jailbait

    I am posting a link that has something about an I-opener. There are links on that site that can direct you to other resources.

    http://www.adamlotz.com/iopener.html

    The hacked I-opener has its modem pulled out. It has a touch screen sensor in place.

    Also, the heatsink was discarded and a fan installed on the processor to make it convenient for expansion.

    The touch screen's installed behind the front panel of the I-opener( in front of the screen of course).This makes the front look a little stuffed but it fits.

    Circuit boards were ordered off the net to plug in a laptop harddisk to the Iopener.

    The i-opener has sockets for putting in a flash card and right now its running windows on it.

    Jailbait linux is running from the IDE sandisk that comes with the I-opener.


    Well in short thats the hack.

    About the touch screen... its a Microtouch Cleartek Capactive Flat sensor with a Microtouch Usb Uncased Controller got them from www.jacoelectronics.com


    Let me know if anyone has any suggestions or ideas
    thanks

    Don't those USB touchscreens use the standard USB HID protocol? I find that it would be strange otherwise. Do you have USB HID and input core support in the kernel or modularized?
