Installation on the BCCD Version 3
Get the tarball and configure the system
This section is describes the steps required to set up the TouchKit Drivers on the Debian-based BCCD platform. The software included with the unit is totally out of date, and there website hosts conflicting drivers, so watch out.
To get the good drivers, go to eGalax TouchKit Drivers Choose your appropriate kernel type. To check to see which kernel version you're using, type
Now that the tarball has downloaded, de-tar it. Upon entering the newly unzipped directory, you should see a script named setup.sh
sudo ./setup.sh uninstall
Next install the software
This script takes care of the X configuration. It does not install the driver, although it likes to pretend that it does. You will have to do this manually.
Install the Kernel Module
Much of these directions come from eGalax Touchscreen on linuxquestions.org First of all, you're going to need the kernel source for the machine on which you are configuring the touchscreen. This needs to be the exact source tree. Again, you can check the kernel version by typing
If you are running version 22.214.171.124_aufs the source tree can be downloaded here
extract the source to /usr/src
To make your life easier, make a sym link linux linking to linux-2.6.* for your version.
ln -s /usr/src/linux-126.96.36.199_aufs /usr/src/linux enter the /usr/src/directory, and prepare the source to compile a module <pre>make oldconfig make prepare make modules SUBDIRS=scripts/mod
Now enter the USBsrc folder and edit the Makefile, changing
KDIR := /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build
KDIR := /usr/src/linux
When make suceeds, you must copy the newly compiled module over to /lib/modules.
Now edit the Makefile in USBsrc and change
Now that you have run the setup script, copy the Touchkit.tar.gz tarball and name it Touchkit-driver.tar.gz now extract Touchkit-driver.tar.gz <pre>gunzip Touchkit-driver.tar.gz tar xvf Touchkit-driver.tar
cd into the extracted folder, and enter USBsrc.
OutBack Powersystems MATE
- The MATE system installed in the display case on the first floor of Dennis has a serial interface. This project will aim to connect solar power generation data to the infobomb system.
- This data will then be visualized in real time on the littlefe.
- The touch screen monitor will be connected to the little fe.
