Please humour me if I’m asking stupid questions, I’m not a Linux expert by any measure!
I’ve got my Hyperpixel installed and working on Raspbian Jessie Lite on a RPi Zero W, and I’ve managed to get some Python code responding to touch events by following the advice here and running the example script provided in the repository README for the driver.
When I run the example script, I can touch the screen and see all of my touches and movements written to the console. So far so good!
However, when I run a Kivy GUI app, the controls don’t respond to touches at all. From what I can gather, Kivy apps are generally run from within an X desktop environment, but I’m not doing this (just running the app directly from the terminal).
My question is, is this even possible, or am I barking up the wrong tree? I’ve been reading for an hour or so but to be honest I’m not sure what to search for… I’ve found some stuff about Kivy input providers but again I’m not quite sure if this is the right direction or not.
A bit of beginner help (or even just some pointers to the correct reading material) would be much appreciated!
