Touchscreen tool
« on: April 27, 2012, 03:24:14 AM »
I tried to compile this: "http://www.philmerk.de/p/touchscreen-tools.htm"
 I had some problems with the source gtouchset (the interface), I had elimilare "-T" from the Makefile since it seems it is not an argument supported by /usr/bin/install but after installing it does not work.

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ gtouchsett

(gtouchsett:32588): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_main_quit: assertion `main_loops != NULL' failed

(gtouchsett:32588): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_widget_show: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

"-T" is a valid option with GNU install program:
Code: [Select]
-T, --no-target-directory  treat DEST as a normal file
but BusyBox install program lacks of that. You need coreutils.tcz

Now I'm seeing that install from Busybox is into '/usr/bin' and not into '/bin'...
This means that coreutils extension does not replace busybox install program...(it still runs Busybox version)

To use GNU one, you must write complete path in terminal. Example:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ /usr/local/bin/install -T ...

Nothing should replace busybox programs.
Change your path.

Please don't double post.

Hi AmatCoder
I think you might be mistaken. I have coreutils installed and get the following results:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ echo $PATH
/home/tc/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/mnt/sda3/tce/ondemand
tc@box:~$ which install
/usr/local/bin/install
Coreutils installs under  /usr/local/bin  which is listed  before  /usr/bin  in the PATH variable.

The mission of the Touchscreen Tools is simply to make using touchscreens on Linux and other systems with the X Window System as easy and straight-forward as possible.

The project in question seems to have a weak point there regarding portability/compatibility when judged by its own declared scope.
As a user you might want to consider to bring that to attention.   ;)

First thanks to all.
@AmatCoder: thanks amat, I'll try to recompile with core utils and let you know, my instinct tells me that I have still problems, but I hope not.
I seen the same problem with wget without having the ability to reconnect with the reasons, now has it all makes sense.

@tinypoodle: my touchscreen is automatically recognized but is not calibrated.
Xinput_calibrator fails to recognize the device.
Xorg 7.6 does not work on my machine.
I hope that this program will make me able to calibrate the touchscreen, if it is simple, well!
(though, I consider that software it is not updated in a long time)

My point is that declared scope:

but then requiring GNU version of install is an obvious contradiction   ::)
