mouse position swapped with touch screen

Postby mozzy69 on Tue Mar 26, 2013 2:41 pm

Hi,
I'm using mint 13 with an elo touchscreen 19".
The problem I'm having is that the mouse position is inverted in the X axis. So it's not that touch does not work it's just simply that the device is possibly calibrated incorrectly?
I've read about loading an X driver called evtouch but the post I got this info from was really old https://www.linuxquestions.org/question ... en-634435/
is there a simple tool (prefferably with a GUI) that I can use to flip the cursor position when I use the monitor's touch? The Y axis seems to be fine it's just the X axis that's flipped/inverted.
I hope that makes sense? Thanks :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

solution was to download the linux driver from the elo website. touch is working perfectly but I haven't tried to setup multitouch.
