52pi 7" touchscreen 1024x600 for VIM1 with ubuntu?

have tried 52pi multitouch 7" screen (to be connected via HDMI and USB). Works perfectly with Win10 out of the box.

With Khadas Vim1 the image is OK, adjusts automatically. Touchscreen does not work however. dmesg shows the following:
603.953597] usb 1-1.4: new high-speed USB device number 5 using xhci-hcd

Has anyone any experience how to get that touch screen working?

I think that one is still in the “HDMI resolutions” testing, please check over there

This VIM1 Ubuntu image https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AiR-XYmpxXdYW3iNzs9EDI4AZbNPwmkj/view?usp=sharing from @Archangel1235 worked for this screen, many thanks to the author. Can select and click with touch now, good enough web for browsing.

Now I need to find a way to have a pop-up on-screen keyboard (to get rid of USB keyboard). Any suggestions anybody?

Hello, Ubuntu should already have an onscreen keyboard. Not sure if there is a way to pop it up when touching a field.
To check, open a terminal and enter onboard, should bring it up. Otherwis check accessibility settings.
A guide.

As of ubuntu gnome, none of those is actually not required…
you can swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen to open the onboard keyboard :slightly_smiling_face:

@ufneeme you can try it out if you are using ubuntu gnome…
