Do I need qtuio for TUIO multi touch applications?



  • Hello,

    Yeah, same question how you can read it in title. Do I need qtuio (-project) for TUIO multi touch applications with Windows 8 or is it enough to use Qt 5? I would like to create an gui application on a touch table with Qt.

    Thank you for answers!

    i dont have any experience with it...but telling from the project description i would say yes.

    Maybe also "this":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/25438 is interesting to you.



  • Yes the project by dancasimiro I found too, but I have not yet tested it. He wrote it is just tested on Linux.. and his documentation.. yeah.. there is no documentation.. :(

    Do you know, what he means with: I have to pass “-plugin TuioTouch” to my applications. ?

    either way write him directly or check out the source.

    i believe that's an default parameter handled by Qt itself. So call your application like this:
    "myapp.exe -plugin TuioTouch"



  • Oh, thank you very much. :)

    Yes, currently I am writing him a message.



  • Hello fant,

    Did you receive an answer from dancasimiro ? Have you tested his work on windows ?

    I have to develop Qt apps using TUIO for Windows 7/8.

    Thank you for answers !



  • Hello Jena43,

    Yes, I am receiving an answer, his library is only tested on Linux.

    bq. The library is designed as a Qt plugin so that I any qt
    application can use it without write special TUIO code. The TUIO events are converted to Qt events and delivered through the Qt event loop.

    But I did not test it, I had problems with the cmake file.
    According to my search for using Qt with TUIO I had to give up, it is not finished enough, furthermore some projects are not really documentated. :(
    Eventually you can use it in future if it should be implemented..
