Touchscreen and LinuxCNC

16 Feb 2017 17:31 #88062 by timmert

I want to use a 10" touchscreen for my LinuxCNC computer. Does every touchscreen work with Linux? Or are there special things to check before buying a screen. I have no experience with touchscreens on Linux.

No, but most do. Check with the manufacturer to see if they have Linux support. If it doesn't work out of the box, usually some drivers may need installed and or calibrated.

I have an ELO touchscreen on the way. Looks like it was a take out of a kiosk or something. eBay, less than $100. From what I found the ELO is supposed to work just fine with Linux.

I have two ELO's that work with Ubuntu 10.04, just take a little fiddling with the configuration file to calibrate it. Might be easier on newer OS's
