LXer: Multi-touch support for MPX, the Multipont X server

Published at LXer:

A while ago I started thinking about how multi-touch and gesture support could look like. Looking around on the web and in the research literature, I found that all the multitouch systems are a hack (I'm talking about software integration here, not the hardware!). Multi-touch support needs to be in the windowing system. Any client-side approach is wrong. (Feel free to disagree with me on that). We don't need gesture support in X. Gestures depend a lot on the context. What we really need is a way to convey events from a touch device to a client application.

I had asked several touch screen hardware vendors, but most of them DO NOT SUPPORT LINUX.

I am looking for a complete hardware package:
1. 17 Inch/larger LCD with built in multi touch screen.
2. USB cable or Serial/RS-232 cable.
3. DVI/VGA/HDMI cables.
4. Driver for Linux, and MPX.

Is there any vendor/shops that sell the above package?

Thank you.
