the touchscreen is typeFaytech 0800 SI 800x600 phisical resolution 8 inch.

I have installed the actual version evtouch from the Mandrive homepage. Cunrently installed is Mandriva 2009 ONE.

In hardware information I can see the touchscreen:



Hersteller: ‎D-WAV Scientific Co., Ltd


Beschreibung: ‎eGalax TouchScreen


Medienklasse: ‎Human Interface Device|No Subclass|None



Bus: ‎USB

The display and mouse bahave normal if a mouse is connected. As soon as I replace the mouse at the USB connector with the Touchscreen no more mouse movement or mouse actions take place.

Is the Modul:


loaded at boot.

You can check this by doing


as a root in the console and look if you see ‎touchkitusb somewhere in the list.

If not put a line called ‎touchkitusb in /etc/modprobe.preload (as root) and reboot.
