I first want to thank you all. This forum has become one of the greatest resources for linux problems just using the Search feature. Thanks for your great work and keep it up.
Now to my problem. I've got a eGalax Touchscreen [touchkitusb kernel driver] connected to my epia me 6000 and it worked all fine before (had to reinstall because of a head crash). I don't know which version of xorg I had before the head crash and I don't know if I had an extra driver for my touchscreen, but the driver I use now makes problems.
The interesting part of my xorg output (verbose level 5) is:
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) TKPANEL: Core Pointer
(**) touchkit X device name: TKPANEL
(**) touchkit associated screen: 0
(WW) TKPANEL: does not have core pointer capabilities
(II) Keyboard "Keyboard0" handled by legacy driver
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "TKPANEL" (type: touchkit Panel)
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/event1"
No core pointer
Fatal server error:
failed to initialize core devices
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
Reading that I think, the driver does not implement one function that is needed to be a core pointer.
I need a driver that can act on the event-Interface, supports absolute coordinates and touchscreen clicks (which in fact was a problem with the old driver, too) and can work as a core pointer. Has anyone any experiences or ideas on how to solve the problem?

Sorry, but I had to remove the protocol from any links I postet because of this 5 posts rule. So please copy the links to your browsers location bar.
Forgot some usefull system information:
Linux carpc 2.6.7 #16 Sun Jul 4 10:38:50 CEST 2004 i686 VIA Samuel 2 CentaurHauls GNU/Linux
I just found the driver I used with my old installation. For archive purposes:
This driver works on event devices with absolute pointer data, but has no "click" support. I'll have a look into this topic, but tpaneld (easely found using google) seems to handle this topic...
Thanks to anyone who read this thread, even if noone could help. Keep up the good work.
