tinycore & touchscreen
« on: November 25, 2011, 05:02:49 PM »
hi!

Since hours i am trying to calibrate the touchscreen on tinycore linux 4.1 on my daughters classmate pc. Althoug the touchscreen seems to work out of the box, i ve got big problems calibrating it.

I loaded xvtouch (a hint in the forum), but it still donĀ“t work. After starting xvtouch with

   sudo xvtouch /dev/input/event4 -c -v

The cursor moves in the upper corner, but the cursor does not move when i touch it. The output of the program is:

   Device /dev/input/event4 = AT Translated Set 2 keyboard
   Input device ID: bus 0x11 vendor 0x1 product 0x1 version 0xab41
   XOpenDisplay (':0')
   calib(X,Y) (0,0)min (16483,16384)max
   screen 800x600
   ev type 4 code 4 val 28
   ev type 1 code 28 val 0
   ev type 0 code 0 val 0
   ev type 4 code 4 val 29
   ev type 1 code 29 val 0
   ev type 0 code 0 val 0
   ev type 4 code 4 val 46
   ev type 1 code 46 val 0
   ev type 0 code 0 val 0
   ...
   ^C                                                 <- here i broke up
   
The file /usr/local/etc/xvtouch.ca does not contain any data.
What did i wrong? Do i have to use xorg and xinput_calibrator?

Thankx for your help.

hmmmm...... it didn't work.
Xorg and xinput_calibrator failed because the calibratios-script allways breaks up.

Does anyone have an idea how to get the touchscreen calibrated?
