eely touch screens and linux
Hi all,

Has anybody heard of Eely touch screens? Apparently it's a Taiwanese company.

If you have, have you heard of linux drivers for it?

I believe you are thinking of ELO touchscreens. If so here is the linux drivers page.

Linux Drivers

Hope it helps.

no, the ELO touchscreen driver is installed by default in XF86 as of like 3.3.6 or something (/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input/ it's called EELY and afaik it is not supported in linux, but I need an affordable screen and found this one cheap, so I had to explore the likelihood of making it work.

Thanks anyway

Hi german,
Did you find EELY linux drivers?
I have also a EELY touch screen.

Unfortunately not. We ended up ditching the EELY (it's now gathering dust) and coughing up enough to get a 3M microtouch, which works very, very well.

Thanks german,
Tomorrow I'll try EELY with Fedora and I post my feedback.

Have you need to buy another terminal or only the touchscreen?

Thanks for your fast reply.

best of luck... I have to build another kiosk soon so if you manage to get it working, pls. don't forget what you did until you've transcribed it.

I bought a monitor with built-in touchscreen to replace the EELY one.
