I don’t think anyone tried this yet obviously no posts but
does this support multi-touch or double-touch, w/e it’s called
nevermind, this is the one sold on ebay
it does not support double touchMarch 11, 2009 at 8:11 pm #182723Petrovitch2Member
OK – I’ve just tryed, got it from the Ebay link above.
No double touch indeed… But I like it so far. Installlation took an hour, it looks fearful only on those pictures.
The Sammy device seemed to be good built inside BTW.
Hope it will work forever (not only for me though)))).March 11, 2009 at 8:19 pm #182710
Top stuff, how well does it hold it’s calibration? The touch screen I added to the epc just didn’t hold the calibration even with the latest drivers.
How well does the frame around the screen fit with the screen in place?
Any pics?March 12, 2009 at 9:24 am #182724Petrovitch2Member
Calibration is OK – no problem so far.
Fitting the screen – it is the main secret!
Have to say that both manuals (PDF from the seller FIDOHUB and more detailed page from http://netbookmag.com) are missing that point. They said -“The touch panel should be fitted within the silver border of the LCD screen” – that’s all.
For me (sorry, my English is the third language though 🙂 that “within” meant the touchscreen to be inside of the original metal frame which goes around the LCD panel and to be fitted directly to LCD. But the touchscreen is bigger than the size of LCD and it fits only ON the metal frame by means of very thin double sided sticky tape – so the glass sits ON METAL actually, being aprox 0.5 mm up from the LCD.! Moreover, to be exactly coincided to picture (they asked you to turn the comp on at that moment) the Touchscreen become out-of-square a bit from the silver frame as well. Thats why they ask in REd not to tighten screws I guess…
Hhonestly, I am still afraid of that metal-glass connections a bit – but there is special shock absorbing level there and I’ve even tryed to press and twist it slightly, so I hope….
Another cons – 1.the screen became glossy now – Some like it though
2. I haven’t found yet any software option for the linearisation in portrait screen orientation (for Opera sofa surfing 🙂 which was one of the goals actually 🙂
OK, having said all that – it works and no regrets so far…
Sorry – no pics from Sammy inside – I was too concentrated on the procedure itself to think of anything else, next time I will do.March 12, 2009 at 8:13 pm #182711

Anyone running Windows 7 with TS?March 26, 2009 at 7:33 am #182719
Just installed mine. Was a rather painful process. Screen bezel was glued pretty tightly at the top. Fitting TS is another story.
Initially I tried the way it is in the tutorial: removing brackets and using shock absorbers between TS and LCD. But there was no way bezel would snap back in with all that in place. So I’ve thrown out absorbers and wrapped LCD’s metal frame with electrical tape. Then everything was relatively trivial to put back.
LCD and TS’s physical alignment isn’t the easiest task as well. Haven’t done it properly yet, but going to try to fit left bracket without screwing it back to LCD’s frame and use it as a guide.
TS works OK with Windows 7. But even though its presence is detected in OS, Windows still does not allow me to use flicks since it considers TS to be a mouse. If drivers from CD are used, Windows doesn’t find any touch capabilities at all. So TS functions as a simple mouse.April 4, 2009 at 6:27 pm #182716deadkennyMember
What kind of things are you going to do (or can do) with a TS at present?
I know Win7 is including support for it, but I’m not really sold on the idea of touch on the desktop. It suits mobile devices and maybe tablets. Problem with touch on a vertical display is you can get a lot of fatigue in your arm as it’s not suited to that position.
Anyway, just interested really in the benefit of touch on the desktop.April 5, 2009 at 3:24 pm #182720
Finger scroll when browsing 😉 No benefits really. It’s expensive, painful to install and pointless. It’s a mod. You gotta love it 😀April 6, 2009 at 9:51 pm #182725frMember
very nice is the usbhub which is integrated in the controller 🙂April 7, 2009 at 9:59 pm #182726frMember
the touchscreen is awesome for applications like adobe reader or google earth. very nice to make notes. and and and
if someone may have problem with his arm. he may have to do more sports 😛
