Need help with elo touchscreen!!


Hi,

I have a problem with installing the Elo touch,

I did install the elo touch with this:
aptitude install xserver-xorg-input-elographics


then opened /etc/X11/xorg.conf and there I did add these, (in this file I could see 2 sectios that start with Section "InputDevice" so I add mine after the secound one)

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Touchscreen"
Driver "elographics"
Option "screenno" "0"
Option "ButtonNumber" "1"
Option "ButtonThreshold" "17"
Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"
Option "InputFashion" "Touchpanel"
Option "MaxX" "4025"
Option "MinX" "22"
Option "MaxY" "3967"
Option "MinY" "75"
Option "Name" "ELO Touchscreen"
Option "ReportingMode" "Scaled"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "on"
EndSection
and I also add next line in
"ServerLayout"

InputDevice "Touchscreen" "SendCoreEvents"
but after rebooting the system the system I have still no touch
I have debian etch on my box

Any idea how to sole this issue?

Thanks,

Shahin

elo driver info says something about needing the regular mouse defined with AlwaysCOre

Section "Xinput"
SubSection "Mouse"
Protocol "PS/2"
Port "/dev/mouse" #could also be /dev/psaux
DeviceName "Mouse"
AlwaysCore
EndSubSection
...
EndSection

Like that I guess?
And also that you have to run an xsetpointer command before using the screen.
Worth a try?

Hi,

Thanks for the replay,

I did solve the issue of driver and now I have touch, But now I want to know how to calibrate the screen, I know it is possible by change the Xmin and ymin, but how can I do it from gui point of view, I did use the calibrator and install and when run it it said touch the upper-left corner, I do that but nothing heppend.

any idea which program can I use to callibrate the screen?

thanks,

Shahin

The name escapes me but I believe xorg has a program which does nothing but monitor keys and mouse input. You just turn it on and use the screen and watch the min and max values and use them to manually calibrate it with a couple trial and and error logout/logins.
