[LINUX]No touchscreen in xbmcbuntu - curly - 2012-04-18 19:15
This may be a somewhat easy fix but I can't find it here and my brain is fried from trying to just get the touchscreen working in the first place. This is a new install of xbmcbuntu (onieric?) on a MSI all in one WindTop model AE 1900. The touch device is detected as two IDEACOM IDC 6680 id=9 and id=10. Apparently device 9 is my touchscreen since that's the only time I got a response from my tinkering with

There must be someone who has an idea about where XBMCbuntu gets it's info for X... no?
Does xbmcbuntu even use X? Or is it some SDL thing? Or...?
I have "Enable mouse and Touch Screen support" set to *on* in System > Settings yet, no joy. :-(
Seeing this post unanswered isn't exactly hope inspiring.

Well, I found a thread, though rather old, that describes a fix for this. I just need to figure out how to make this run when xbmc starts... I guess.

I got it to work by adding the line from that thread
For the curious (and maybe me if I have to do this again), initially the touch screen was all out of whack upside down and backwards. I got the touchscreen working in openbox (regular X) by adding this stanza at the top of /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf
I also added this bit at the bottom but I'm not sure I needed it:
The machine is an MSI All In One AE1900-B, Atom 330, Intel graphics, IDEACOM touch device.

Just for your info. With me the "trick" with the SDL_MOUSE_RELATIVE export does not work with a EETI based touch screens. Been searching for a solution now for almost a year...
Looks like I need a crash course in coding and dig into the core code of XBMC...
Honestly: this kind of issues that get no solution is where non-open source products win upon.
