Dell Mini 9 gets hacked for touch screen

Deldotb has got a touch screen to work on his Dell Mini 9. One of the USB hubs is used for this hack as he couldnt find which extra points on the motherboard to use. He hopes that when he posts the directions to install this hack that someone will be able to develop the hack more.

[i]udev[/] also needs to be restarted from a shell after starting Ubuntu which may be due to a driver needing to be installed. Apart from these two problems, Deldotb purchased a touch screen from eBay, which works well.

Deldotb intends to post the installation directions up in the next day or two. You can view the video of the Dell touch screen 9 in action below.
