    eGalax touchscreen setup and calibration in Ubuntu Lucid (with calibration tool)

    [not sure, but it might work with earlier versions.]

    Without installing the eGalaxTouch support I got everything working great with default evdev setup in ubuntu 10.04 adding these two commands to fix the old problems with rotation / swapped axes. Correct tap behaviour was present out-of-the-box.

    Code:
    xinput set-prop --type=int --format=8 "eGalax Inc. USB  TouchController" "Evdev Axes Swap" 1
    fixed the swap
    If Y is inverted:
    Code:
    xinput set-int-prop "eGalax Inc. USB TouchController" "Evdev Axis Inversion" 8 0 1
    and then calibration:
    Code:
    xinput set-prop --type=int --format=32 "eGalax Inc. USB  TouchController" "Evdev Axis Calibration" 57 1938 162 1979
    to get Your own calibration numbers You need this:
    http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Soft...put_calibrator

    building from source:

    #for fresh desktop install You'll need some packages:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install g++ autoconf libtool xorg-dev
    unpack the calibrator, cd to the folder and run
    Code:
    ./autogen.sh
    make
    cd to the src folder and run
    Code:
     ./xinput_calibrator_x11
    do the clicks and it will write Your config to console.
