    touchscreen drivers for pioneer dreambook

    hi,

    ive had this dreambook (TN121R) from the australian company pioneer (http://www.pioneercomputers.com.au) for a couple of years now and ive only just switched over from windows to ubuntu. The touchscreen does not work in ubuntu and i have no idea what brand it is.

    Ive read a couple of other similar posts and ran
    more /proc/bus/input/devices | grep -F Name
    and got
    N: Name="Power Button"
    N: Name="Power Button"
    N: Name="Sleep Button"
    N: Name="Lid Switch"
    N: Name="Macintosh mouse button emulation"
    N: Name="AT Translated Set 2 keyboard"
    N: Name="Video Bus"
    N: Name="HDA Digital PCBeep"
    N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
    so not useful.

    The only other information i know is that running
    sudo cat /dev/usb/hiddev0
    is responsive to the touchscreen.

    I would really like to get it working! Any help
    would be much appreciated.

    Re: touchscreen drivers for pioneer dreambook

    ive made further progress on this problem, but its taken months!

    ive found my touchscreen to be a MagicTouch.

    and there appear to be drivers available in previous versions of ubuntu (http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/ha...put-magictouch), but not in 10.04 that im using atm. Is there any reason why this package no longer exists?

    Thanks for any help
