Touchscreen

#1 Post by Mario Milovanović » Wed May 02, 2018 12:22 pm

I have a problem installing touchscreen on HP Touchsmart 300-1220.

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 1926:0006 NextWindow 1950 HID Touchscreen

When i try to install driver from manufacturer it say that there are some missing dependencies that can't be satisfied.

sudo apt-get install '/media/mario/Podaci/Instalacije/Programi/nwfermi-0.6.5.0_amd64.deb'

Note, selecting 'nwfermi' instead of '/media/mario/Podaci/Instalacije/Programi/nwfermi-0.6.5.0_amd64.deb'
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have

that is very likely a package built for either an older ubuntu or an older debian.

is there a newer version available? ia32-libs hasn't been around since debian 7. the other package looks like a ubuntu ppa package as well.

looking at the nwfermi questions page on the launchpad site, I see that a user did "solve" his issue by dropping back to debian wheezy (debian 7). https://answers.launchpad.net/nwfermi/+question/665183

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

I can't help you personally with that, but according to this Ubuntu forum link:
https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1645591
A person there used the directions for the Touchsmart 600 to get their Touchsmart 300 working with Linux.

By following these directions: https://www.ebower.com/docs/ubuntu-touc ... html#AEN83

I've searched the web pretty well and that's the best that I could come up with. However, when I did a search in the Synaptic package manager, there's an installable app there for configuring touch-screens automatically. I have no idea if this could work for you, but the name of the app within Synaptic is: x11-touchscreen-calibrator

Here's the actual Synaptic description of that package. Perhaps someoen else knows more about this ... ???
The purpose is to calibrate the touchscreen's coordinates automatically.
Install this package and it will run automatically in the background of X
Window System.
Good luck.
