Can you post the hwinfo --usb into to see what it's doing.

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.
