ELAN Touch screen problem (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS)

Postby ttwand » Mon Aug 15, 2016 8:37 am

Hi everybody,

I have wandboard quad. I am using ubunto 14.04 for OP.

I bought 21.5'' full hd touch screen from china.

I write "lsusb" command in the terminal. I can see ELAN touchscreen..
But I can use "xinput" command, there is no touchscreen device.

I can not use touchscreen on ubuntu 14.04.

May you help me please?

You might need to enable the driver for your touchscreen.
Yes, this might need a kernel recompile ... embedded linux is not windows plug and play.

Thank you so much Tapani :roll:

Firstly, I am very new on linux and of course embedded linux.

I have to run touchscreen and then I will test my GUI. I will make some modifiactions about disable right click and only use long/short press, I hope I will be succesful.

I am using prepared ubuntu image of Ubuntu14.04.2. How can make a kernel recompile?
Can you show me the way abot this?

Or, may you suggest a different linux image for me? I will use touchscreen and install qt5. I only want to run my GUI on the wandboard quad. I dont use it for development.

Thank you again. Have a nice day.
