Description Han Boetes 2013-05-20 17:36:55 UTC
I have 9 touchscreen monitor with this system,
3 devices identified as 3M MT7 Touch Screen
3 devices identified as eGalax Inc. USB TouchController, and
3 devices identified as ILITEK ILITEK Multi-Touch

I do not see a clear way to identify the devices. All I can do for now is hope nobody switches around the devices. Furthermore setting them up in the proper order is far from obvious.

I hope someone realises that the xinput method is ok for one monitor but rather unworkable for 9 monitors.
