DESCRIPTION

       aiptek  is an Xorg input driver for Aiptek HyperPen USB-based tablet devices.  This driver
       only supports the USB protocol, and only under Linux; for RS-232C-based HyperPens,  please
       see the "hyperpen" driver.

       The  aiptek  driver functions as a pointer input device, and may be used as the X server's
       core pointer.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       This driver supports the Aiptek HyperPen 4000U, 5000U, 6000U, 8000U and  12000U  USB-based
       input tablet on some Linux platforms.

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.

       Multiple  instances of the Aiptek devices can cohabit. It can be useful to define multiple
       devices with different active zones. Each device supports the following entries:

               Option "Type" "stylus"|"eraser"|"cursor"
                   sets the type of tool the device represent. This option is mandatory.

               Option "Device" "path"
                   sets the path to the special file  which  represents  serial  line  where  the
                   tablet  is  plugged.  You have to specify it for each subsection with the same
                   value if you want to have multiple devices with the same tablet.  This  option
                   is mandatory.

               Option "USB" "on"
                   specifies  that  you  are  using  the USB bus to communicate with your tablet.
                   This setting is mandatory, as USB is  the  only  protocol  supported  by  this
                   driver.

               Option "DeviceName" "name"
                   sets the name of the X device.

               Option "Mode" "Relative"|"Absolute"
                   sets the mode of the device.

               Option "HistorySize" "number"
                   sets the motion history size. By default the value is zero.

               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.
                   You can use the last available integer feedback to control this feature.  When
                   the  value  of  the  feedback is zero, the feature is disabled. The feature is
                   enabled for any other value.

               Option "XTop" "number"
                   First of three sets of parameters to set the active  zone.  This  sets  the  X
                   coordinate of the top corner of the active zone. "TopX" is a synonym.

               Option "YTop" "number"
                   First  of  three  sets  of  parameters to set the active zone. This sets the Y
                   coordinate of the top corner of the active zone. "TopY" is a synonym.

               Option "XBottom" "Inumber"
                   First of three sets of parameters to set the active  zone.  This  sets  the  X
                   coordinate of the bottom corner of the active zone. "BottomX" is a synonym.

               Option "YBottom" "number"
                   First  of  three  sets  of  parameters to set the active zone. This sets the Y
                   coordinate of the bottom corner of the active zone. "BottomY" is a synonym.

               Option "XMax" "number"
                   Second of three sets of parameters to set the active zone. This sets the the X
                   coordinate  of  the  bottom  corner  of  the  active  zone. The Top X corner's
                   coordinate is fixed at 0. "MaxX" is a synonym.

               Option "YMax" "number"
                   Second of three sets of parameters to set the active zone. This sets the the Y
                   coordinate  of  the  bottom  corner  of  the  active  zone. The Top Y corner's
                   coordinate is fixed at 0. "MaxY" is a synonym.

               Option "XOffset" "number"
                   Third of three sets of parameters to set the active  zone.  This  sets  the  X
                   coordinate of the top corner of the active zone. "OffsetX" is a synonym.

               Option "YOffset" "number"
                   Third  of  three  sets  of  parameters to set the active zone. This sets the Y
                   coordinate of the top corner of the active zone. "OffsetY" is a synonym.

               Option "XSize" "number"
                   Third of three sets of parameters to set the active  zone.  This  sets  the  X
                   coordinate  of  the  bottom  corner  of  the  active zone. Unlike others, this
                   parameter is expressed in relative coordinates from the  "XOffset"  parameter.
                   "XSize" is a synonym.

               Option "YSize" "number"
                   Third  of  three  sets  of  parameters to set the active zone. This sets the Y
                   coordinate of the bottom corner  of  the  active  zone.  Unlike  others,  this
                   parameter  is  expressed in relative coordinates from the "YOffset" parameter.
                   "YSize" is a synonym.

               Option "ZMin" "number"
                   Minimum pressure reading that will be accepted from the Stylus tool. "MinZ" is
                   a synonym.

               Option "ZMax" "number"
                   Maximum pressure reading that will be accepted from the Stylus tool. "MaxZ" is
                   a synonym.

               Option "XThreshold" "number"
                   Minimal change in X coordinate position that will be accepted as  data  input.
                   "ThresholdX" is a synonym.

               Option "YThreshold" "number"
                   Minimal  change  in Y coordinate position that will be accepted as data input.
                   "ThresholdY" is a synonym.

               Option "ZThreshold" "number"
                   Minimal change in pressure reading  that  will  be  accepted  as  data  input.
                   "ThresholdZ" is a synonym.

               Option "InvX" "on"
                   Inverts X coordinate reports. "XInv" is a synonym.

               Option "InvY" "on"
                   Inverts Y coordinate reports. "YInv" is a synonym.

               Option "Pressure" "soft"|"hard"|"linear"
                   Pressure reports either delivered in linearly incremental values (default), or
                   perturbed by one of two log-linear algorithms ("soft" or "hard".)

               Option "KeepShape" "on"
                   When this option is enabled, the active zone  begins  according  to  TopX  and
                   TopY.   The  bottom  corner  is adjusted to keep the ratio width/height of the
                   active zone the same as the screen while maximizing the area described by  the
                   active  area  set  of  parameters,  XTop/YTop/XBottom/YBottom,  XMax/YMax,  or
                   XOffset/YOffset/XSize/YSize.

               Option "DebugLevel" number
                   sets the level of debugging info reported.

       This driver is currently Linux specific.
