Years ago I bought a screen on Amazon
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0eef:0001 D-WAV Scientific Co., Ltd eGalax TouchScreen
A couple days I'm trying to get it running on my PI (newest Jessie on Pi B Rev2). I stumbled over a bunch of how-tos and tried a lot of stuff (except compiling a new kernel) but I was not able to get the touch running.
I tried to replace the kernel - didn't even boot (prob. wrong version?).
I flashed the delivered ISO - booted, but no touch reactions.
Was not able to setup the drivers.
And after reading this I decided to do nothing than just run the
xinput_calibrator. No reaction either.
So after some research at SE I found how to that gave me some commands to figure out if things are properly set up (on a Jessie version from scratch)

So I had pretty much the same outputs as the blogger described.
The questions you might help me with:
- Am I guessing right that I don't need to compile a kernel? according to: GitHub
- Should my display work with the setup from above?
- How can I figure out, if my touch (device) works at all?
