Moneual Lab MonCaso 932P HTPC Case
« on: January 21, 2011, 01:37:51 pm »
Is anyone using this case or similar? <http://www.directron.com/moneual902.html>
The touch screen uses a D-sub cable that exits through the back of the case to connect to the video card and an internal USB cable that connects to the motherboard.  I know that to get the touch panel working there has to be Linux drivers it.  Moneual Lab's website seems to be down so I can't find out if linux drivers exist or even who makes the screen. (3M maybe?)
The other issue would be, can LMCE support two monitors on the same machine with two different UIs?  In other words, (if the touch screen works) can you have the UI1 on the touch screen and use it simlar to an orbitor, and have the UI2B on your main out (hdmi, component, etc)?  I don't know how usefull this would be but it is a cool case.

Thanks,

<M>

Cool case.

I've been looking into Linux touchscreen drivers for a while now for my carPC, so have a look at the forums here (lot of information on this site) http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/

And also at this one which is a forum for a specific carPC distro called LinuxICE http://forums.openice.org/viewforum.php?f=20. It's a quiet forum, but kev000 is a very helpful bloke.

As far as I remember from my research, I think there are only 2 or 3 main "types" of touchscreen, so there are only a few generic drivers about, which should work for most types. Please don't quote me on this though - I haven't bought my touchscreen yet so have no idea if this is actually the case!

Cheers,
Matt.
