evtouch 0.8.8, xserver-xorg-input-evtouch (0.8.8-1) feature requests
I had lately the luckily opportunity to use the evtouch 0.8.7. driver in
pure lenny environment, with a extremly cheap LG flatron L1730SF device.
And its working, and thank you, All, for that driver! My
observations/request pointing to that 0.8.7. version, and sorry for your
time, if such improvements was yet made (which i couldnt recall from the
1. Calibration vs rotate/swap
Those functions (rotate/swap) are very handy i think, but when doing
some calibration stuff (xorgconf calibrate 1) these options are ignored,
and therefore the calibration values are completely wrong. And
calibration importance grows, when talking from low end touch-panels :)
2. Calibration vs bad quality touch panels
Ive seen so around 5 lg touchscreen devices already(...which i had to
calibrate intuitivelly), and ive came to the unproofed experience, that
these touch-panels are extreme bad quality near (so around in a 1anhalf
cm band - the panels are 17") the edges/corners. So i think it ll make
sense, move the test points more near to the center a bit(lets say
1cm/2cm each), or add 8 another test points 1cm/2cm nearer from the
"outern" points building an "inner" circle. With one of these
modifications the calibration can effect a more powerfull precision.
Naturally the calibration binary is not really debian-friendly, and
after every restart/reboot there can be some suprise with the
/dev/input/eventX device-name, but i saw modifications in newer
versions(subject) into such directions.
Thank you for your work very much in the name of the evtouch users.
ps.: sorry for my english, hope its understandable.
