Touchscreen no signal with imx6qdl board

Contributor I

Hello, I have used yocto for OS with imx6qdl target board. Since I am trying to use ILITEK ILITEK-TP touchscreen, and I confirmed that I have below results once I connected it

input: ILITEK ILITEK-TP as /devices/soc0/soc/2100000.aips-bus/2184000.usb/ci_hdrc.0/usb1/1-1/1-1:1.1/0003:222A:0001.0002/input/input5
hid-generic 0003:222A:0001.0002: input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [ILITEK ILITEK-TP] on usb-ci_hdrc.0-1/input1

The problem is that I cannot get any signal when I use : cat /dev/input/event4 with touching screen...

And with evtest, I have got below..

/dev/input/event0:      isl29023 light sensor
/dev/input/event1:      mag3110
/dev/input/event2:      mma845x
/dev/input/event3:      gpio-keys
/dev/input/event4:      ILITEK ILITEK-TP
Select the device event number [0-4]: 4

  Event type 4 (EV_MSC)

Also, I have confirmed that this touchscreen works well with raspberry pie and my labtop (ubuntu 16.04)..

Lastly, what I have tried recently was that I was attempting to change mecuconfig kernel to add touchscreen driver

with 'bitbake -c menuconfig virtul/kernel'

But, still, I found that there is no file on


evbug.ko mouse serio

Could you anyone tell me what I have to do?

Thank you in advance.

seems similar problem was described on

linux - Adding touch screen driver to Wandboard, i2c device registration - Stack Overflow 

One can try to debug it in touchscreen probe function checking signals with oscilloscope.

Recommended to use nxp bsps described on
