but hang on a second... don't touch screen work pretty much the same way as a mouse would? What screen are you using for your mac mini?
If only. Plug and play would be wonderful right now.
We are using the HannsG HT231. Its a great monitor for the price, we use them attached to windows PC's in our production areas.
But apart from the ELO touch screens (which I used to use the CRT version of at a previous company 15+ years ago) nobody seems to offer drivers for Mac.
That includes Acer, Iiyama, Dell, HP, Viewsonic etc
From the forum posts I have read through, manufacturers responses seem to be that Apple do not support it so there are no drivers.
With the various drivers we have tried only the touchbase ones work.
Shaun what about the Leap Motion device? Doesn't that allow you to wave you hands in the air and which then controls the mouse on the screen. I haven't used one but if it can simulate mouse clicks that you have to 'touch screen' so to speak.
Hope this helps.
To be honest touch screen was a bonus to speed up selection but is not essential. We have decided on using a slightly cheaper version of the Leap Motion called a mouse.
Just frustrating that its not supported with so many of Apple's products being touch based. Meanwhile you can run most touchscreens on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 without any problems.
Its a driver not a complete OS, just support it.
Just curious...what was the third party software that required OS X?
Caldera. It does also run on Linux but as we were linking it with filemaker it made sense to go the Mac route.
