I'm so excited! Puppy Linux Portable is back! I'm taking a break from Cat World, so I'm starting work here again.

I've started to design the interface and the ArfPad, which is the tablet PC I'll be building to run this on. I've been browsing the internet looking for a good WM to mod to create the interface, but I haven't found one yet. Can anybody give me some suggestions? Right now I'm leaning towards heavily modifying FVWM, because it's lightweight, but I would love your input! Also, I'm not sure if I can modify it enough.

I also still need links to touchscreen drivers I can package into the version I'll release here. I only need one driver in my personal edition, but I want to support as many as possible for the public edition.

Thanks!

Hi! I think I've located a generic touchscreen driver for Linux, ready for .PETing! Someone mentioned it a while back here, but it was modified for Ubuntu, so I couldn't use it. Unfortunately, I can't download it until I know what version of Xorg Puppy uses. Does anyone know? Thanks! Smile

PuppyLinuxGuy,
Most touchscreens are supported in Linux by the Evtouch-usbtouchscreen drivers, which I provided for Puppy versions 2.12-2.16 and 2.17 here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=106090#106090

These drivers have 2 main components:
- the "usbtouchscreen" kernel module, which must be compatible with the kernel version.
- the "evtouch" Xorg plugin, which must be compatible with the version of Xorg.

Regarding kernel/Xorg compatibility:
Puppy 2.12-2.16
kernel = 2.6.18.1
Xorg = 7.0

Puppy 2.17
kernel = 2.6.21.5
Xorg = 7.0

Puppy 3.00-3.01
kernel = 2.6.21.7
Xorg = 7.2

Puppy 4.00
kernel = 2.6.18.8
Xorg = none, but maybe v7.3 later as an add-on.

Compiling the usbtouchscreen kernel module is quite simple, but compiling the evtouch Xorg plugin requires the full Xorg source code (several hundred MB) ... that's why I only did it for Xorg 7.0.
I don't intend to compile this plugin for Puppy 3.x, but I might compile it for Puppy 4.x at a later stage.

tempestuous,
Thank you so much! I will use those drivers for PLP 1.0. Right now PLP is based on Puppy 2.14, so the EVTouch driver will work fine.

Also, I can still add more specific drivers to the public edition, so keep posting your brands, and driver locations, too, if you have them!

any news on this project? I've seen a cheap subnotebook with a Touchscreen (Kohjinsha SA5) and was wondering if Puppy or a puplet could let me use the touchscreen.

Hi! I'm not really working on this project at the moment, but post any info you have, because that could change soon.

Thanks, Billy Very Happy

Wow! Talk about a blast from the past! I didn't know I was even still following replies on this topic.

I'm glad somebody is still interested in it, though! Very Happy

Actually, that guy was a spam-bot of some sort. He bounces around and copies a line of text from the first post in the thread, then he hides a link below that, which blends in with the background colors. Tricky little fart, but he's messing with a fart-master. Twisted Evil

I certainly would be. I just installed puppy o a ASUS R2H UMPC. The graphics only work on xvesa so far. The touch screen works but the calibration is way off.

The next generation of monitors is likely to be touch screen.

If the rumoured Apple tablet emerges and various PC or other processor
tablets emerge, there will be increased interest in such a device

I am interested in going this way Cool

There´s really need for stickOS with touch screen support..
<20Mb preferred:) (Afolux 7" panel pc in mind). We´ve seen the touch screen invasion during these 2 years..
