Semtech Touchscreen Driver is a driver on X for the Semtech Touchscreen as found on the GoBook III manufactured by Itronix.
It comes with a calibration program and has been tested on Linux 2.6.9.
You will need a kernel with the following options compiled.
Next you will need to enable raw PS/2 reporting for the touchscreen. Type in the following command:
echo -n "serio_raw" > /sys/bus/serio/devices/serio1/driver
You should see the following message:
serio_raw: raw access enabled on isa0060/serio2 (serio_raw0, minor 1)
Type the following command to compile the driver:
Do the following as root to install the driver:
You will need to issue this command every time the computer starts so I suggest you stick somewhere in the initalization scripts.
Add a section in xorg.conf or XF86Config that looks like this:
Identifier "Semtech Touchscreen"
Option "Device" "/dev/serio_raw0"
Option "DebugLevel" "0"
Option "CalibrateA" "-369046"
Option "CalibrateB" "1114"
Option "CalibrateC" "4893014"
Option "CalibrateD" "-2152"
Option "CalibrateE" "-282719"
Option "CalibrateF" "5331971"
Option "CalibrateDiv" "-359811"
Note that the device can also be called /dev/psaux depending on your setup.
Start X and run the touchcal program to calibrate your screen. It will ouput the calibration information
There is also a program called touchcal.pl, it requires the Perl Tk toolkit. The program will write calibration information on your X configuration file.
