Configuring touchscreen "click" behavior
OK... So, I've successfully managed to get my Lilliput touchscreen functioning (for the most part). The calibration utility works and the cursor properly jumps to the correct co-ordinates when I touch the screen, but there is something strange going on with the click behavior...
It's a little difficult to describe, but here it goes:
When I touch the screen, the cursor jumps to the proper co-ordinates (as expected), but it almost appears as if there's a "second click" or "ghost click" simultaineously occurring at other (seemingly random) co-ordinates.
For example, if I touch the center of the screen, the cursor goes to the center of the screen, but it will also launch an icon in the toolbar... I can drag my finger across the screen and the cursor will follow, but also select/deselect various icons on my desktop.
Here's how I managed to make my touchscreen work:
1)I Downloaded the touchkit source from http://linux.chapter7.ch/touchkit/
2)I extracted a file called "evtouch_drv.o" from within a compressed file in "evtouch-0.5.1-src-tar.gz"
3)I copied "evtouch_drv.o" into /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input
4)typed "modprobe evdev" into a root console
5)I compiled and ran the calibrator, which displayed the xorg.conf settings (needed when editing "xorg.conf")
6)I edited the "xorg.conf" as per the instructions on the mini-howto.txt
7)typed "rmmod touchkitusb"
8)typed "modprobe touchkitusb swap_xy"
10)Everything works properly, with the exception of this "phantom clicking"
I've only been foolin' with Linux for about 18 months now, so I still consider myself sorta newbish.
Anybody have any ideas as to what might be going on here?
