I have the same issue. I have connected a LCD S070WV20-CT16 to a M64 board and installed an ubuntu image, however touch is not working. Where could I locate the updated driver?

  1. For S070WV20xxxx Lcd screen to execute command “insmod /lib/modules/3.10.105-BPI-M64-Kernel/kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/ft5x/ft5x_ts.ko” to enable Touch function.

  2. For HC070TGxxxxx Lcd screen to execute command “modprobe gt9xxnew_ts” to enable Touch function.

you need use new code to compile it, and update kernel.

Thank you for the prompt response. I have installed an image of the following repository:

It contains an Ubuntu 16.04 LXDE image with kernel 3.10.105. It also contains the driver ft5x_ts.ko, however touch still not working. I looked at file /var/log/Xorg.0.log and there is no error but the touch is device is not being reconigzed. If I change driver to gt9xxf_ts in the xorg.conf, file /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows that the touch device seems to be regonizged, however still not workig.

Could you provide me an url of an image that Works with this device? Also, could you provide the URL where the driver can be downloaded from?

I appreciate your help.

Kind regards.
