Hi,

You have some ideas on what to do?

I download the last official driver from 3M http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/3MTouchSystems/TS/CustomerSupport/TouchDrivers/
I have installed these from the terminal of my MD (./Install), rebooted and everything works.

please create a wiki for these devices... Title the wiki "3M Touch Screens" and add some pictures.

Dear All,

I´m thinking to get one of this, what´s better Serial or USB? I thinking in the M1700SS 17" monitor.

hi,

 I bought the serial, as it was available that, do not deny that I had some problems with LinuxMCE 7.10 because the automatic recognition serial blocked the touch. In version 8.10 once the drivers are installed correctly everything works fine.

Hi again,

I have another question regarding that.
If i have some drivers or modules to load for this screen, can i do a diskless boot? and when and from where are the drivers load?

I think in this case is the same question like another drivers that should be loaded indepedent from the LinuxMCE system.

In resume and going out a litle bit out from the main post, if i need to load another drivers outside from the LinuxMCE what i need to do? Install Kubuntu in the MD and load the drivers in?
Every time i tryed to do that never had started the MD, in the first boot later to install LinuxMCE from Kubuntu, and the LinuxMCE installed had detected the Core and i answered that this PC is a MD, i get some errors and at the end starts Kubuntu but no LinuxMCE.

I think i had deviated the post, if it´s this case i will open a new post.

Thnks in advance

Hi,

   
I do not know if I understand your request, however with regard to the drivers of the touch I'll explain how I did.

I use a touch with a diskless Atom N330, I created the MD normally and then I open KDE and a system terminal, I have downloaded the drivers and I have installed directly on MD.
I have also tried to install them from the core with chroot but doesn't work, the installation hangs.
