Problems with touchscreen TS2005F-USB


Hello,

I have a bit problem with touchscreen device.
Normaly, I use embedded system with ads7846 to use touchscreen devices, but now, I am developing a project with Geode LX and I use a touch screen device with usb controller.

Problem is that I do not known how to use it. In a few words, is it necesary use TSLIB with this device or I need other library to managed touch??

I want to use touch screen with QT, but when I try to test touch screen with TSLIB, it returns me the follow message:
"Selected device is not a touchscreen device I understand"

Then, I am lost in this moment and I can not continue with my project.
Any idea or advice????

More data:

Kernel recognize device as /dev/input/mouse0 or event0
If I make hexdump /dev/input/mouse0, when I touch, I can see a lot of hex characters .

Best regards
John Martin

most likely this usb touchscreen works as a standard HID mouse. it should work just fine with qt or anything else without any kind of special drivers.

Hello johnson,

You are right, my kernel have detected touchscreen as HID mouse.
But I can not work with it in QT.
Could you tell more about how to use it in QT embedded?
QWS_MOUSE_PROTO= ????????

best regards
