Loopy - I did pop into #gp2x-dev and asked around for some help, but it seems most devs don't own an F200 nor do they have any intentions of getting one.  Also, no-one seemed to know anything regarding SDL and the touchscreen.

The Pandora looks very interesting.

There was a thead a while ago where some claimed they would develop for the touchscreen despite the pandora coming out. That was before anyone knew what itd look like or what the spec would be so that could have changed.
The keyboard is pretty interesting from a tracker pov but i wonder how usable it ll be for that in practice. Apparantly it ll be about 550MHz , big touchscreen, decent amount of ram and with two joysticks, a d pad and all thouse buttons it could be a bit of a killer for music software if the right people dev for it. Fingers crossed.

Ok I googled around a bit and found this:

http://www.gp2x.de/cgi-bin/cfiles.cgi?0,0,0,0,46,2358

It reads out the touch screen directly from device file. Seems that SDL either doesn't support the touch screen or it didn't at the time when this example was made.

Now you should convince Deltafire to hack that stuff in ;)

Edit:
Seems that SDL does not in fact support the touch screen, at this moment in time:

Ok, so it seems that the SDL library that's supplied with the F200 is broken (as regards to touchscreen support).  I spoke to some guys in #gp2xdev and they suggested that you try the Open2X SDL instead.

Let us know if it works :)

Update: You need to install Paeryn's SDL, which is probably the same as is included in the Open2X package.

A linux shared library is basically what a DLL is on windows. There's nothing more to know about it, replacing the SDL library with a modified one is a matter of a few minutes.

http://paeryn.myby.co.uk/

The website even says:

Updated with basic support for the F-200's touchscreen. Currently it appears as a mouse as long as no USB mouse is present. All mouse movement events appear with the left mouse button down.

I'm pretty sure this will solve all your problems.

If you don't know how to install it:

Thanks for the time and the links :)
The only guides i can find on how to install it seem to assume a .gpu file to run which isnt in there. Ill keep looking for something very step by step but this is a bit beyond me to do quickly. Will come back when ive read up and understand what im doing.

Has Anyone gotten the touchscreen to work properly by replacing the SDL?

Furthermore, can someone please tell me the step by step process? I can't make heads or tails of how its meant to be done. :)

Thanks Guys.

As it seems you can't replace the existing SDL. You need to link milkytracker against the newer SDL library, which means you have to build milkytracker yourself.

ok. How to I build Milkytracker myself? :P I'll have an ask around some GP2X forums.
 
Is there a release of the Milkytracker GP2X Source Code somewhere, the version Deltafire built?

I left a message with Deltafire asking him if it was possible to build a version with the new SDL. No response yet.

Thanks for your help pailes,
