Have you tried it more than once? Maybe there is just a startup problem.
I have used both 4pcal and 25pcal and it does make a difference to the
accuracy of the "mouse" pointer placement on the screen when you touch
the screen. The only important thing is that you have to run 4pcal and/or
25pcal before you load tpaneld because both try to use the uep device.

I think the usb driver, uep, should go into the main source and the rest
should be a port. At the moment I'm preparing for a 10 day trip in Aug
to Botswana and the Caprivi part of Namibia, so I have some other things
with higher priority. I needed the touchscreen for the car computer
tgough. :-) I'll look at getting the uep driver into FreeBSD. If you
want to look at making a port out of the rest, that will be great.
