eGalax Touch Screen Panel Worked Out of the Box on Pi 3

  • Title.

    Can’t really figure out why this is the case… I simply plugged in the panel (connects via USB) and it worked without me installing any drivers or anything.

    Of course, the calibration was way way off, so I used xinput_calibrator to calibrate it and it seems to work pretty well.

    Just curious as to what is going on here. I installed raspbian Jessi on this pi. Maybe the drivers are included in that distro? This was the minimum install by the way.

    Does anyone know why it worked plug and play?

    Likely because it’s using standard USB drivers.

    Maybe it acts as some kind of USB mouse/touchpad?
