Yes. I have an eGalax touchscreen and it's doing the same thing. The
number of items it's reporting is 256 (according to my preliminary
debugging), causing the warning.  I think these things are a special
subclass of HID for multitouch touchscreens which we don't support

/usr/ports/multimedia/webcamd will most likely attach if invoked
manually, to this device and provide an event device for you!


Okay that's /amazing/, and not at all intuitive!  I mean I'd expect
multimedia/webcamd to only attach to "video" devices, but lo and behold
I get a /dev/input/event0 device which spits out gibberish when
cat(1)'ed and I touch the screen!

My intentions were to port Linux's hid-multitouch device in whole to
FreeBSD (it's what attaches to my eGalax device and probably to OP's
touchscreen device) and add support for the device to moused(8), but
it's not very high on my priority list...


If you apply these patches, will work with your X-org :-)


Didn't seem to attach to mine, running from /etc/rc.d / devd
