Just curious,

Were you able to get a virtual keyboard to come up on your touch screen?

I got an ASUS touch screen monitor and hooked it up, but there was not virtual keyboard. The good news is that I was able to hook up a regular keyboard, then navigate to this link and add a virtual keyboard extension to the chromium browser on the controller.

Works like a charm.

I have not tried an Acer monitor with the Buildbotics Controller. The discussion at the following link suggests that it will not work out of the box but seems to provide a work around to get it going.

If you decide to try this out, please report back.

Hi, does the MageDok 108B touch scren (10.8") work with Buildbotics controller, and do you recommend its resolution (1366 × 768 pixels)?
