    [SOLVED] Re: touchscreen works only if mouse attached

    Nope, I just stuck with Debian, and the kiosks are working fine.

    [SOLVED] Re: touchscreen works only if mouse attached

    Finally solved by downgrading the kernel from 3.0 to 2.6 (that is, by wiping Ubuntu 11.10 and installing Debian Squeeze) and downloading a canned touchscreen driver from EETI, found here. The...

    [SOLVED] Re: touchscreen works only if mouse attached

    Can't really say I understand, but the problem has gone away.

    I did a debian stable installation on another partition and left debian's bootloader on the MBR. Turns out the touchscreen doesn't...

    Bump, and same problem here, except I'm trying to do it with fluxbox.

    Auto-login refuses to go to the user's choice of desktop environment. That might not be a big deal, but as things stand, the...

    Here's a chunk of dmesg after a happy startup (touchscreen works, because a keyboard had been attached at boot)

    I'm trying to get an all-in-one touchscreen PC working as a kiosk (no mouse or keyboard), using the new Ubuntu 11.10, and am almost there.

    [ubuntu] Re: Elo TouchScreen 4200L and Ubuntu 10

    Curious: are you testing this with a mouse attached, or no? A kiosk station wouldn't normally have a mouse of course.

    I found a rather awkward workaround, which was to write some scripting around mtp-sendfile (from the mtp-tools package). It at least lets me copy files in a specified order.

    Not user/bin/fax, but /usr/bin/fax is what you want. If you have either the efax or efax-gtk package installed, /usr/bin/fax should be there.
