There is a retro version of Lucid 525 which uses the same kernel as 431, which you could try, and might be able to upgrade kernel
Also see if a kernel upgrade can be applied to 431?
Polarpup/Icepup and Lupen also use 2.6.38, Slacko 531 has 2.6.39, and I'm using it now
see also

Perhaps MU could help with a German version?
However I thought Internationalisation was now functional in later puppies?

Hey, need some help figuring out what driver type to use with a Fujitsu Point 1600. Tried a bunch of the things mentioned in this but no go. Googling this machine doesn't pull up anything for what driver or even connection type it uses (USB, serial, etc.). lspci & lsusb & cat the device input & TTY & events don't seem to show up much. Any commands to definitively try?

Don't know if this is any use?



maybe a driver from a different model?


Info's a bit sparse for that one...

PostPosted: Sat 01 Dec 2012, 19:40    Post_subject: compaq tc1000 touchscreen  

Hello guys. I'm an eager but very basic user of puppy and linux, and at the moment I'm trying to bring a Compaq TC1000 back to life.
Puppy (4.3.1) works fine as usual, but the touchscreen doesn't work. I installed the pet from the beginning of this thread, but I can't understand most of what comes after. Could someone please help with some 'idiot-proof' guidelines?

longobedience, at the outset, you need to do some research to learn exactly what type of touchscreen device is in your laptop, and what interface it's connected to (USB, serial, or PS/2).
Then the instructions I provided on page 1 will make more sense, because you will know which section is relevant.

Fortunately for you, I just did this research for you: your touchscreen device is the Fujitsu Finepoint Stylus, which is connected to an internal serial port.

So the relevant instructions for you are - "HOWTO - serial touchscreens" -
Work your way through that information carefully.
Your kernel module will be "fujitsu_ts"
and your Xorg driver will be "fujitsu" (in more recent versions of Linux this is now "fpit").

Your serial address will probably (?) be /dev/ttyS0

And just in case someone with a Compaq TC1100 stumbles upon this information - don't assume your touchscreen is the same!
It's not.
