auto detect USB device at boot


Hello all, last week I tried to get a touchscreen to work, try what I may I couldn't get the X axis to reverse, however by a fluke I found It runs off my Xorg mouse set up. So reverse mouse axis and it works!

Great, but my next major problem is for it to start it has to be un plugged and re plugged? At first I thought it was usbtouchscreen, but insmod shows it's already running, can anyone offer any advice so it's detected from boot?
I'm using Xorg, debian etch and the touchscreen is 3m/microtouch. I have pmount etc installed. But would like to "hotplug" from boot rather than plug in after xorg has started.

PS try as I might the mutouch microtouch drivers will not work for this screen on any system.

Thanks in advance

Can you post the "Mouse" section from your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?

Section "InputDevice"
# generated from default
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "InvX" "1" #added for touch screen
EndSection

I've tried adding mutouch and microtouch drivers, but mutouch has no effect microtouch locks up. insmod reports usbtouchscreen is always loaded, even before I plug in the touch :S

when I plug the touch in I get dmegs

usb 4-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
usb 4-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
input: 3M 3M USB Touchscreen - EX II as /class/input/input5
usbcore: registered new driver usbtouchscreen

a different event from the mouse (event4), however it uses the mouse xorg ie speeds inverts etc all work on touchscreen.

Thanks
