I'm developing a kernel driver for a multitouch digitizer. How can I find an example of how should the event be injected to the OS subsystem?

Is there any open source driver out there that could serve as a start point?

Is there any place where I can find official documentation about this?

Any help regarding to this would be great.

Thanks in advance,

With my best regards,

You can read input documentation for the Linux kernel.

Perhaps more specifically the Multi-touch Protocol.

You can also get help at the Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML).
