What we have available

Thanks to all who have contributed hardware!

Touchscreen

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

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

After installing the drivers, a calibration of the elo touchscreen is required. This can be done in 2 ways.
