Touchscreen bounces with Qt app.

  • Today I got a new panel PC, I believe it may be the cheapest one available. The thing has an Ltd eGalax touchscreen and with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS installed it works out of the box like a charm.

    But when I run my Qt application, the touchscreen bounces.....alot. When I boot to the desktop there seems to be no problem at all. The virtual keyboard of ubuntu also works perfect. My fancy Qtumbler does not work now :(

    My application is run on it's own desktop (so it can run fullscreen).

    I do not know where the problem might be. The problem might be related to Qt (5.8) or it might related to the separate desktop. But I have no way to test this.

    I don't know if there are any known issues between Qt apps and certain touchscreen drivers??

    what exactly does this mean?

  • I mean it bounces just like a bouncing switch. When I hold my finger on a pushbutton (yes, autorepeat is disabled), I see the state toggling and events are being executed continously instead of just one time. This prevents me from using the Qtumbler :(

  • So nobody has a clue why Qt on this systems behaves like this?

    Do you have the same strange behaviour if you compile your application your distribution provided Qt ?
