To be clear, the existing My-T-Touch is not, nor will ever be Linux/Unix/Solaris compatible. Our next generation on-screen keyboard software (similar in concept to the My-T-Touch) is all based on our Build-A-Board product, which can support multiple targets. The existing version supports Windows & all Windows CE platforms, and we are currently working on adding Linux / X-Windows support to the package. Where applicable, we are working with existing & new customers in a beta-release program to ensure the widest compatibility with the Linux/UNIX targets.
The next release of Build-A-Board (sometime in 2006) will be 2.20, and it will have an X-Windows target available. We will also document which distributions & Unix targets have been tested. Because of the level we write at, we anticipate just about all X-Windows servers will be able to run the software, meaning if you have a graphical interface to your Linux or Unix system, you should be able to run Build-A-Board layouts. Note that the Window manager will not be a limiting factor - KDE, GNOME, etc. will all happily operate with our Build-A-Board target.
