Video showing screen rotation support

HidTouch Suite is a x.org input device driver to use a USB touchscreen that is seen by the Linux kernel as a HID device instead of input or event. It had to be written to support the ET&T touchscreen embedded in some TN120R laptop shell from Clevo, and has been used successfully on other touchscreen.

A video showing that hidtouch driver now support screen rotation is available here : http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xdhnv5_pilote-hidtouch-demo-rotation-ecran_tech

hidtouch User Manual is up to date

HidTouch Suite is a x.org input device driver to use a USB touchscreen that is seen by the Linux kernel as a HID device instead of input or event. It had to be written to support the ET&T touchscreen embedded in some TN120R laptop shell from Clevo, and has been used successfully on other touchscreen.

The user manual is updated, with better explaination (I hope) to create the udev rule, and the new available parameters.

hidtouch v10.05.18 available, tester needed

HidTouch Suite is a x.org input device driver to use a USB touchscreen that is seen by the Linux kernel as a HID device instead of input or event. It had to be written to support the ET&T touchscreen embedded in some TN120R laptop shell from Clevo, and has been used successfully on other touchscreen.

This new release has a new set of option to run correctly on some multitouch devices (it is not multitouch support), but I don't have such a device to test it.

Trackers added for better support

I was surprised that there was some messages on the help and discussion forum, I've just added them to monitor.

I also created two trackers for reporting bugs and requesting new features.

With all of this, I should not miss any new message (I hope so).
