Package: xserver-xorg-input-evtouch
Version: 0.8.7-2
Severity: normal

The source README with this package indicates that the author knows
the calibration utility does not work, and indeed it does not.  First,
a required pixmap file
(/usr/share/xf86-input-evtouch/empty_cursor.xbm) is not installed in a
place that the utility can find it.  Moving it to / (!)  addresses
that problem, but then with current xorg I could not surmount the
authorization issues required to get the thing to run using its wacky
socket and xinit strategy.

There is an alternative calibration utility, which works for any event
input device, and prints the Min/Max X/Y values.  It runs as a normal
X client and requires manual intervention to paste its output into
xorg.conf, but it is reliable and simple.  It is downloadable at
http://linux.chapter7.ch/touchkit/calibrator.c, but unfortunately
there is no copyright notice or license in that file.  It is very
probably free software, given that it is widely distributed with the
Linux usb-touchkit, but I can't say for sure.
