    eGalax Touchscreen on POS fujitsu TP8AS

    HI again:

    IM here again with a new POS trying to make a touchscreen work
    THIs is a POS from fujitsu, called TP8AS (i think this is a new version and there are no drivers on the fujitsu page)

    so im trying to install the touscreen (egalax)
    drivers
    http://www.eeti.com/drivers_Linux.html - Drivers - eGTouch_v2.5.5814.L-x

    the guide tells me to compile the kernel( i did it with 3.0.101-63-pae and folloed the guide
    https://www.suse.com/communities/blo...rnel-suse-way/

    everythin good , kernel compiled and booted BUT the touchscreen still doesnt work. ( and i might add the network doesnt work too, still checking why)

    so the guide tells me to compile the kernel and add/remove some options using make menuconfig ( did it)
    and then add some lines to evdev.c - mousedev.c - joydev.c ( did it and the kernel compiled with no errors. BUT on kernel 4.8.5 which is te one using the customer , i cannot compile it )

    so now im stuck with a nother touchscreen.

    can you help me?

    let me know what you need

    regards

    Re: eGalax Touchscreen on POS fujitsu TP8AS

    HI Again Malcolm:

    I saw that thread but it doesnt apply to the new drivers and the ID its different.
    there is a guide inside them that you need to follow to just install the drivers ( they ask you to compile a new kernel)

    the thing is i did all that ( im contacting the vendor but no luck so far) , and the screen doesnt work

    i was able to install the drivers, but no touch yet

    hope you can enlighten me a bit how can i do it

    have a great day

    Hi
    OK, so I looked at the script, it uses uinput and blacklists
    usbtouchscreen and install it's calibration tools etc.

    You didn't need to rebuild the kernel, all that was needed to be done
    was run the command mkinitrd so it will apply the blacklist.

    So with the device plugged in to the USB port (Hopefully USB 2.0 and
    not 3.0) you should see the device preset and using uinput?

    If it's still showing usbtouchscreen then I would surmise the blacklist
    didn't work.

    Re: eGalax Touchscreen on POS fujitsu TP8AS

    Hi:

    can i ask for a little guide on how to accomplish that please?
    im still new on linux and dont know how to black list and run mkinitrd?

    i know that mkinitrd has to be ran on the /boot , at least thats where i was able to run it once i did the kernel compilation.

    i will appreciate , a lot, if you can give me the steps to do it

    regards

  7. Re: eGalax Touchscreen on POS fujitsu TP8AS

    Hi
    If you run the command;
    Code:
    hwinfo --usb
    Does your USB device still use usbtouchscreen?

    You just need to run the command mkinitrd to rebuild intird, the system knows where to look and what to do

    You can also check if the uinput module is present in your kernel and loaded with;
    Code:
    /sbin/modinfo uinput
    lsmod |grep uinput

    this command do not return anything

    Does your USB device still use usbtouchscreen?
    I dont have an answer, this is a POS from fujitsu and eveything is integrated, but it uses USB to connect the screen internally

    Let me know what else can we do to make this screen works

    Hi
    Since uinput isn't loaded, please run the commad;
    Code:
    modprobe uinput
    Then the hwinfo command again.
