    touchscreen drivers for pioneer dreambook


    ive had this dreambook (TN121R) from the australian company pioneer ( 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 (, but not in 10.04 that im using atm. Is there any reason why this package no longer exists?

    Thanks for any help
