DESCRIPTION

       palmax is an Xorg input driver for the Palmax PD1000/PD1100

       The  palmax driver functions as a pointer input device, and is normally
       used as the X server’s core pointer. It supports positioning and  mouse
       buttons  using  the  touchscreen  display and lid buttons on the Palmax
       machines.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       Palmax PD1000, Palmax PD1100. In theory also any other system  using  a
       TR88L803 wired to a serial port.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS

       Please  refer to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration details and for
       options that can be used with all input  drivers.   This  section  only
       covers configuration details specific to this driver.

       The following driver options are supported

       Option "MinX" "integer"
              Set the left hand X value from the touchscreen, for calibration.

       Option "MaxX" "integer"
              Set  the  right  hand  X  value  from   the   touchscreen,   for
              calibration.

       Option "MinY" "integer"
              Set the top Y value from the touchscreen, for calibration.

       Option "MaxY" "integer"
              Set the bottom Y value from the touchscreen, for calibration.

       Option "Screen" "integer"
              The  screen  to  attach  to  the  touchscreen  when running with
              multiple screens.  The default is screen 0.

       Option "Device" "string"
              The serial port that is attached to the  touchscreen  interface.
              On the Palmax PD1000 and PD1100 this is ttyS0.

       Option "DeviceName" "string"
              Set  the  X11  device name for the touchscreen. This defaults to
              TOUCHSCREEN.

       Option "PortraitMode" "string"
              Set the display orientation. The default is "landscape" but  you
              can  rotate  the  screen clockwise ("portrait") or anticlockwise
              ("portraitCCW").

       Option "SwapXY" "boolean"
              Swap the X and Y values on the display. The default is false.

       Option "TapButton" "boolean"
              Set the touchscreen tap to act as mouse button  1.  This  allows
              single  handed operation except when using the menu buttons. The
              default is false.

BUGS

       The driver has been tested on the Palmax systems, the defaults  reflect
       the Palmax hardware and should work out of the box. No testing has been
       done on other systems using the same digitizer.

       Support for a double-tap menu button option would be nice.

       The smoothing algorithm would benefit from real mathematics.

       Xorg needs a nice calibration tool.
