Hello, I recently acquired a Tormach 1100 S3.  I have a UnyTouch U41-T190DS-SBL touchscreen monitor I would like to use with it.  I have installed the touchscreen on a Windows machine and it works fine.  I have never used any machine with Linux before.  When hooked up to the PathPilot controller, I cannot get it to calibrate.  When I enter ADMIN TOUCHSCREEN it enters the calibration screen correctly and allows me to select the first point.  It does not accept the second point, although each time I touch the second point, it resets the timer so it is registering a touch.  I assume it is a driver issue.  I downloaded what I believe to be the correct Linux driver for the touchscreen but I have no idea how to get the driver installed on the PathPilot controller.  Any assistance in how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

I did more experimenting and the cursor definitely responds to the touch movements but it is completely out of calibration, and apparently far enough out that the on-board PathPilot calibration is unsuccessful. I did more looking online and found where other people were successful with calibration of similar touchscreens but from what I saw those who were successful were using PathPilot 2.x.x. My machine is currently running PP 1.9.13, so I have ordered the updated version. I had planned to do the update anyway, so this just gave me added incentive to do it right away. I will report back when I get the update done and have a bit of time to do some further experimenting.

Just thought I would update this in case anyone runs into the same issue in the future.  My upgrade to PathPilot 2 arrived today.  I installed it and without doing anything other than running the on-board calibration (ADMIN TOUCHSCREEN), the touchscreen works perfectly!
