Default gentoo elo touchscreen

I have setup the display part of my elo touchscreen:

kernel option: Device Drivers -> Graphics Support -> Console display driver support -> Framebuffer Console Support.

with "lsusb" I see "Bus 001 Device 004:ID 17e9:0211 Displaylink"

Should there be also a second device for the input/touch function?
X video is working fine, but I cannot move the touch cursor (input)..

Any Idea for:
Kernel setting?
howto check if the settings are correct?
xorg.conf settings?

Thanks.

There needs to be a second driver. USB devices can have multiple Interfaces in a device. The input functionality is a second interface in those devices. The driver for that is called "elousb". You need a fairly new kernel for that, as it was only recently integrated. You can see all interfaces with "lsusb -v"
