Touch Screen Monitors

Thu Feb 21, 2013 4:31 pm

Hi I've just bought a Pi and am currently using it on my 32inch tv. I want to buy a touch screen monitor but would preferably like it bigger than 10inches. I can't seem to find any bigger than that that use hdmi to plug in.

Has anyone else found a bigger one that's easy to connect to the Pi, or is there an easy way of connecting a VGA touch screen monitor to it?

I've read that if you download something you can use a vga > hdmi cable and that should work and then plug the touch screen part into the pi using usb?

Has anyone else done this successfully? It's an important part of my project that i make it touch screen.

I am experimenting with a 15" 3M MicroTouch screen this week. Will let you know if it worked.

Where did you find the drivers for the monitor? I am in desperate need of them!
