DESCRIPTION

        calcomp is an Xorg input driver for Calcomp devices.
 
        The calcomp driver functions as a pointer input device, and may be used
        as the X server’s core pointer.
        This driver supports the Calcomp binary  format  used  by  the  Drawing
        Board II and III series.
        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.
 
        Both  the  3  button stylus and the 4- or 16 button lens cursors can be
        used without changing the configuration file. Support for pressure sen‐
        sitivity has not been tested, so the solid-tip stylus will probably not
        work.
 
        This device supports the following entries:
 
                Option "Device" "path"
                    sets the path to the  special  file  which  represents  the
                    serial  line  where  the  tablet is plugged. This option is
                    mandatory.
 
                Option "Cursor" "Stylus"|"Puck"
                    this option is supported for backward  compatibility  only,
                    but it should not be necessary.
 
                Option "DeviceName" "name"
                    sets the name of the X device. Some user-space programs may
                    require a fixed name, e.g. TABLET,  to recognize the  digi‐
                    tizer.
 
                Option "Mode" "Relative"|"Absolute"
                    sets  the  mode of the device. Currently only Absolute mode
                    is supported.
 
                Option "Pressure" "on"
                    enables pressure reporting if your tablet supports it. This
                    option is untested and may not work.
 
                Option "AlwaysCore" "on"
                    enables  the sharing of the core pointer. When this feature
                    is enabled, the  device  will  take  control  of  the  core
                    pointer  (and  thus  will emit core events) and at the same
                    time will be  able,  when  asked  so,  to  report  extended
                    events.
 
                Option "MinX" "number"
                    X  coordinate of the bottom left corner of the active zone.
 
                Option "MinY" "number"
                    Y coordinate of the bottom left corner of the active  zone.
 
                Option "MaxX" "Inumber"
                    X coordinate of the top right corner of the active zone.
 
                Option "MaxY" "number"
                    Y coordinate of the top right corner of the active zone.
 
                Option "DebugLevel" number
                    sets the level of debugging info reported.
