palmax - Palmax (TR88L803) touchscreen driver
Option "Device" "devpath"
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
Palmax PD1000, Palmax PD1100. In theory also any other system using a
TR88L803 wired to a serial port.
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
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
Option "PortraitMode" "string"
Set the display orientation. The default is "landscape" but you
can rotate the screen clockwise ("portrait") or anticlockwise
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.
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.
