I am using a Beetronics 15TS touchscreen monitor, which is based on eGalax technology. I am running it with a Compulab Fitlet-B at a resolution of 1024x768.
I am having difficulties however in calibrating the touchscreen properly.
OS is LinuxMint 18.1 XFCE edition.
I have tried running xinput_calibrator, and adding the returned settings to the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-input.conf which makes the changes stick.
However, the calibration is not being well done. The main problem I encounter is that there is a small skew in the touchscreen, meaning that a given position tapped with the stylus on the right side of the screen, places the cursor lower than a vertically identical position tapped on the left side of the screen. The skew is about one centimetre for the whole of the screen. xinput_calibrator is not able to calibrate this - in fact I had to run it with the paramater "--misclick 0" in order to make it complete the calibration process.
Is there any place where I can adjust the settings in order to compensate for this skew?
xinput_calibrator lists the following devices as available, but it is only when working with the second one (id=10) that the changes seem to take effect:
Code: Select all
$ xinput_calibrator --list Device "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController Pen" id=9 Device "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" id=10
