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.
        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  calibra‐
               tion.
 
        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 multi‐
               ple 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.
        Xorg(1), xorg.conf(5), xorgconfig(1), Xserver(1), X(7).
