I've posted some threads lately regarding irtouchscreen on voyage and ubuntu 9.10 distros. The problems weren't solved so I jumped to and older ubuntu (9.04) and I managed to make the touchscreen work. The problem is the touchscreen is acting like a mouse. The cursor doesn't go to where I touch, it just moves around just like a normal mouse.
Is this a common problem, and if it is, how can i solve it ?
This Xorg.0.log shows this about the TouchScreen
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "USB Touchscreen 595a:0001" (type: TOUCHPAD)
(**) USB Touchscreen 595a:0001: (accel) keeping acceleration scheme 1
(**) USB Touchscreen 595a:0001: (accel) filter chain progression: 2.00
(**) USB Touchscreen 595a:0001: (accel) filter stage 0: 20.00 ms
(**) USB Touchscreen 595a:0001: (accel) set acceleration profile 0
(--) USB Touchscreen 595a:0001: (accel) no supported touchpad found
The touch driver is loaded by Xorg. Is it possible that although the driver is loaded , it isn't being used ?
the lsmod output tells me that the usbtouchscreen isnt being used by anything.
I really need some hints about this.
