touchscreen help

5 posts in this topic

Ok so i just got my new toughbook cf-73 from ebay, it came with win2k on it, so today i decided to upgrade it to xp for now, because i figured configuring its touchscreen on linux would be a bitch. So i installed XP, installed drivers for everything, including the "SMK PnP Tablet" which is the toughscreen hardware. Everytime i touch the screen, the cursor jumps up to the top left of the screen and wont go where im touching. I cant find any software for the touchscreen to help me configure it. any ideas?

Care to clue us in to what the problem was and how you fixed it? Anyone finding this through google is going to be quite angry you didn't say how you fixed it.

Oh yeah, well all I had to do was find touchpanel options which was under the control panel, and run the calibration program. I assumed it was a driver issue because I was using the driver that was labeled "sp1", but it turned out I had just overlooked the touchpanel configuration option in control panel.

Weak man, weak. You should of installed Linux. If you are still interested, egalax touchscreens aren't difficult.
