its the calibration log in ubunto that this touchscreen worked correctly in there.
i think there is all the information i know in this moment.
The touchscreen connected to a mini board and from there, connected to raspberry pi. in raspbian and ubunto i had no problem.
Thanks

Hi,

I was in trouble with similar behavior for weeks.

Actually using osmc 2018-12-1 with nebula skin, raspberry pi 3B, official 7" touch screen.

I figured out today that mainly, mouse cursor and touch interaction are independant but …

Default location of mouse cursor (top left) interact with the top “option bar” with a sort of roll over behavior. When i touch the screen this mouse cursor interfere with the expected action.

If i simply move one time that mouse cursor elsewhere with a mouse or rii remote, the touchscreen is working perfectly.

As i want to use alternatively touch feature and rii remote as mouse, i will look for changing the default position of mouse cursor.

I hope this can help some users.

Best regards
Stefil
