There is touchscreen support in the version 16.0 test builds for openelec/kodi.
I am presuming you are running kodi version 15 - the update relatively straight forward.

First go to the Kodi forum here http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=231092

Look in the first post of the thread for the most recent build and download it onto your PC. What you will download is a compressed file with the extension ".tar". It will be a file something like this - OpenELEC-RPi2.arm-6.0-Milhouse-20151003214213-#1003-g6c9a6c5.tar

Make sure you get the correct version for either RPI or RPI2

Connect to your RPI running openelec using windows explorer - type \\<ip address of your Pi> into the explorer address bar - this is windows file explorer not internet explorer

Navigate to the update folder and copy the ".tar" file you downloaded earlier into the update folder (no need to decompress it, just copy the ".tar" file as it is)

Reboot your RPI and it will detect the update and install it.

You should now have touchscreen support.

Have you confirmed the screen works with a clean install of Rasbian and x-windows?

Actually.. when i used ready to use raspbian.. touch is working.. even if the top screen menu area is flickering. But in xbmc, i am touch is not working.. i changed the skin to nebula.. still its same.
Now i am trying it with the original raspbian.. the result will be informed soon..
