This page is the home of the free serial (RS-232) ItmTouch touchscreen from
ITM Inc driver for unix released under
Linux support from Itm Inc was only
provided throught a binary driver for RedHat 8.2 as a hack of gpm 1.3
emulating the suma protocol. But they provide us the technical reference
documentation of their chip that permit me to write this native XFree input
driver and make it freely available.
Many thanks to Itm Inc for providing us the
technical documentation that make it possible to write this driver and thanks
a lot to Equipement Scientifique throught Jerome
Boulangier for taking care of our problems and making the relation with Itm.
