Hi,

 

I am fairly new to OS X, recently making the jump from Windows.

And I haven't looked back and don't think I will!

 

I have come across quite a few problems during the transition when it comes to hardware, but usually it came down to my error with configurations.

I am struggling with one issues and hoping someone in the apple community has overcome this and can maybe share the knowledge?

 

Here goes:

 

I have an AOC e2239Fwt multi touch monitor, works exceptionally well for a cheap touch screen with windows 7.

However it hardly fuctions at all with MAC OS X, I have tried numerous touch screen device drivers with a glimmer of hope it may make mine function correctly.

But they didn't, I have tried imtouchbridge, eol and 3m drivers non of which have worked!

 

It recognises its a touch screen but I have to put 2 fingers on it to show the mouse cursor, but then its as if I have left click held down and it also is about 2 inches away from any of my fingers!

 

If anyone can help it would be massively appreciated and if you can't, thank you for taking your time to read and consider.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Paul


AOC e2239FWT multi touch, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    I read it wasn't supported so didn't order one, got a new iPad instead, and totally recommend it!!!!

    Hi,

     

    did you already try this driver?

     

    http://www.cartft.com/support/drivers/TFT/

     

    You have to scroll down for the "Mac Intel/ PPC / OS9" drivers. Works fine with my SDC 10" touch screen (it's the 2nd screen ... don't worry )

     

    regards

    Stephan

    unfortunately, the two drivers above are basically the same TPMon TouchKit drivers. I have used these with a resistive screen I had but the AOC doesn't appear to like them.

     

    Running parallels, the drivers from the AOC site are working perfectly. unfortunately i haven't been able to callibrate the screen as of yet so that is a little annoying but it isn't far off.

     

    In Mac os i am yet to find any useful drivers.  I did read on one site that touch-base have some drivers that can handle the AOC but they charge £180 for a single license and i dont know if i can justify that for the gimic of touch screen in mac.

     

    of course, if anyone out there knows of a similar driver to the touch-base one i would be only too happy to try it. i believe the have a gesture recognition package that can be run along side the driver to open up a few more features.

     

    sorry this isn't particularly helpful but hopefully it opens a few doors to ideas in people.

     

    I'm keen to see how this all turns out and if anyone manages to get the monitor running.
