Report on the state of work

Posted by AlfredOne on April 29, 2019 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello everyone,

i'm writing this post to communicate the status of my driver's touchscreens jobs.

To begin with, it is no longer a driver: since the appetite comes with eating, I wanted to aim for a complete solution.

After 8 years of development done in my spare time (having worked on it full-time I think it would have been ready in about 6/7 months), the result is the following:

  • touch.device: provides the common API for mounting drivers and producing touch events (including MULTITOUCH);
  • touch.usbfd: touchscreen drivers connected via USB (currently only supports old egalax);
  • touchPrefs: configuration tool for touch devices based on the touch.device API;
  • touchbench: is an example of client for touch.device. It is an application that works in the background and translates touch events produced by touch.device into mouse events.Among the various features, it also works in multiscreen, to some it might seem trivial but I assure you that on AmigaOS it is not.

For how it's structured, writing new drivers to support other touchscreens is very simple.

Is anyone interested in doing some betatesting before release, or does it have other touchscreens to propose to me?

Thank you

egalaxtouch v0.2 released

Released the new version 0.2 (05.08.2011) of egalax touchscreen driver for Amiga OS4.

New features in this version:

  • increased the number of points needed for calibration, from 2 to 3; now you can use touchscreens with X/Y swapped.
  • implemented event handlers based on automa: it will let me provide multiple behaviors in future releases .
  • user-configurable (such as better mouse emulation, right button emulation etc...).

In the next version (0.3):

  • Graphic User Interface in order to configure the driver

It could be very useful in conjunction with a touchscreen.

Betatesting of eGalaxTouch driver for OS4

Hello everybody,

if you have a touchscreen with eGalax controller and AmigaOS4, this is the right place where help me to betatest the egalaxtouch4a driver.

In the egalaxtouch4a page you can find some of the compatible touchscreens you can test with the driver.

Please, tell me what is right and what is wrong.

Thank you.
