What we have available

Thanks to all who have contributed hardware!

Software

MPD

The MPD / djmount / MPDplayer software have been set up in the same way as the setup in Whitespace. This setup is documented here.

Point of sales & Stock management

Using the Jostokassa application made by Koert

Touchscreen

It might be convenient to use a touch screen at this location. Rob has provided a old LCD touchscreen we might use. To get it running on ubuntu (testet on 10.10) you need the following driver to be installed:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-elographics

After that you need to add the touchscreen to you're /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. This was done according to the configuration found here: http://0x20.be/Table_Computer. Restart X-server and you should have the touchscreen working. The values in the xorg.conf must be calibrated to you're specific configuration. At this time I haven't found any other option to do this then trail and error.
