Touch Screen

Hello, I am trying to get a sain smart touch screen to work. using any other operating system on the pi when i type ls -l /dev/input/by-id it shows the event number, however on osmc it does not show at all. I am trying to make a car media centre so i would like the touch to work.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hank

I wish it was that easy. You probably have to compile a new kernel
To get my 3.5" WaveShare SpotPear screen working i followed the guide here: Waveshare spotpear 3.5 inch touch screen help! - Page 2 - Raspberry Pi Forums
Somewhere in the middle of the page, (where is it says: managed to get the LCD working in a basic fashion on an RPI2)

These are the notes i’ve saved for my pi1, to not forget on how to update it, because updating it will overwrite the bootloader and you’ll have to do it from the start again :

--Update packages except raspberrypi-bootloader

sudo apt-mark hold raspberrypi-bootloader
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

--Update bootloader, but not the kernel and modules

sudo apt-get install rpi-update
sudo SKIP_KERNEL=1 rpi-update

--And rpi-update also overwrites the custom kernel, so use :
sudo REPO_URI=https://github.com/notro/rpi-firmware rpi-update
