Thanks for your question.

The FirstTouch kit has not been designed or tested to work under linux, however, it is technically possible. A custom driver may need to be developed or you might be able to reuse an existing HID class driver under linux and then a separate application to interface with this driver. Unfortunately, we don't currently have any documentation on doing this specific task.

Hope this helps answer your question and thanks again,

This is an old thread, but I hope it still gets monitored.

I am highly interested to read information from the FirstTouch kit from an embedded linux device. Is there any more documentation on the protocol used? Or do I have to reverse engineer the USB protocol from the windows machine?

Hello Thomas,

The First Touch Kit device has been designed as a HID device. I'll try getting some information for you regarding how the protocol has been implemented. If I'll get some, I'll update this thread.
