  • 800x480 Xorg.conf info for SeForm SEF800 TPC(w)

    Hi all,

    Thought I'd share this with you in case anyone else has been having issues driving a SeForm SEF800-TPC(w) 8" vga touch screen from Fedora Core 6 (or xorg)

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "SeForm"
    ModeLine "800x480" 36.769 800 848 896 1120 480 508 511 525
    HorizSync 25-75
    VertRefresh 50-75

    The timings above seem to work nicely for 800x480.

    Has taken weeks for me to get to this! Still waiting on a suitable response from SeForm tech although I do now have screens with an upgraded firmware thanks to my perseverance.

    Feel free to ask for more info. I'll update this thread if and when I get more from SeForm.

    More info

    In addition, my system specs are:

    EPIA CN10000E-RS (CN700 based), 512mb DDR2 ram, 40 gb ruggedised HDD, EDR2 Bluetooth dongle.

    Fedora Core 6 2.6.20 kernel

    EPIA board has BIOS rev.1.07 - These boards are capable of 16:9 resolutions, but probably only with this bios.

      Touch screen functionality?

      It's awesome that you already know what you do! But by any chance did you get your touch screen pointer to work? I cant seem to switch the X and Y coordinate mapping, and it's killing me to know how. I've been searching for three days already, so any help you can offer would really make my day. Thanks!

        for X Y swap, you should really re-compile the kernel, and modify/fix touchscreen driver, but there's xserver config directive swapxy that should work too.
