Hey everyone, i have my hands on a Vantage TPT1210 tablet PC, it uses windows XP as its default but its very limited as far as touch screen software avaiable, my ultimate goal is to turn this luxury home control tablet into a student tool in my journey through college.

EVERYTHING WORKS FINE!

except... the touchscreen. When i put pressure anywhere on the screen (it is pressure sensitive not capacitive) the mouse will do a very random dance across all axis of the screen, random jumping everywhere, it just goes crazy. Now i know for a fact they use quite a rare set of hardware as they are a small company and look for the best money saving ideals rather than dependable hardware. I have set up HP TX1000 tablets, and countless other touch screen devices with ubuntu, but this one just takes the cake... far far away. Does anyone have any idea where to begin here? I will copy my lshw and my xinput list so you can further see the system, I cannot for the life of me identify the tablet manufacturer...

my question is, is it logitech? or is it even being identified by ubuntu? if not why is it responding? wacom evtouch to no avail, and other countless drivers, let me know if you have any ideas, consider this device your Guinea pig! I'm not afraid to break it! (software of course)

Further Digging in the Windows XP install i discover it is a "TouchSet PS/2 Touch Panel Controller"

I found a website for its drivers which include linux packages, let's hope for the best, i'll keep this updated with my progress!

Out of luck, it seems like most of the dependencies in the linux packages require old packages, such that which used to be included in Ubuntu 7.04 and before... Seems they haven't updated their drivers in a while...
