Howdy Pranav,

Woe that sounds like a nifty idea. For the time aspect, would
talking-clock work? Here's the link:

Also, if I can help let me know.

Thanks,
Storm

Hi Storm,

Thanks for that clarification. I was kind of afraid of that.

I am asking because I have this idea of building my own smart watch with a 
raspberry pi zero.

I will have to use the CLI and am wondering how to control the watch. Yes, 
dedicated buttons will do but I wish I could get a full keyboard. In a GUI, I 
could use gyros to move the mouse etc.

I have seen a project that did this.

Howdy Pranav,

Unfortunately, as far as I know, the answer to both questions is no. I think 
touch screen input is only available in some X sessions.

Thanks,
Storm

Hi all,

Do touch screens work on the Linux CLI? Can Fenrir work with them?
