Hi Thomas,
sure, i can modify xorg.conf. My configuration can be found in this document:


But i dont understand where to put the "void".

Maybe i dont understand it correctly, but i thought that touchscreen is 
different from mouse and should not appear in /dev/input/mice because it 
generates absolute screen coordinates while mouse generates relative 
coordinates. But that is just my impression, i havent read any docs about it 
yet :)
