Hi Damon
To help you, I need some information;
Are you using the image of our website or did you install the drivers manually?
Does the touchscreen work within the console?
Can you show me the output of;

cat /etc/modules/

The other issues, I cant help with out see what you entered and the error messages.;
99-fbturbo.conf does not exist. If possible, can you show me what you entered to edit this file? you can use history to see your previous commands.

** sudo sh -c ‘echo “sudo /bin/sh /etc/X11/Xsession.d/” >> /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart’ ** There is a note under the text of this code “When copying and pasting the last line above, you will need to confirm that all the quotes get copied correctly” Are you also able to show me what you entered for this? and the error message.

** ls -l /dev/input/event* + cat /proc/bus/input/devices **
I have added some more info here… so it should help. You should still do some investigation on your part as I have no idea what you have connected to your Pi.
A file handle is created for each input device currently connected and can change depending on what is connected and how many input devices are connected.
If you have a keyboard and mouse connected, there should be 3 files.  One for the keyboard, one for the mouse and the last one for the touchscreen. If you have just a keyboard connected, there would be two. One for the keyboard and one for the touchscreen.
To see what file handle is used for the touchscreen, view the file below.

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cat /proc/bus/input/devices

Look for ADS7846 Touchscreen and within the same section you should see H: Handlers= followed by an eventnumber. This will tell you what file under /dev/input/ is used for the touchscreen.

Going forward, use the input event number associated to your touchscreen in the commands below.
