    Ibm x60 laptop touchscreen...

    Hi all. I just got a ibm X60 tablet and it runs very smoothly with Xubuntu 11.04. Sadly when I bought this computer it was missing it's stylus but I think it has finger touch as well. In fact if I go to the mouse settings it recognizes "Serial Wacom input touch'...Which sounds promising. I have found examples were people got the stylus working but not finger touch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.8)

    Hi Firezap,

    You should be able to get a stylus from Lenovo or maybe Wacom for about $10.

    I don't remember if some X60t's had touch or not. What is the output of xinput list in a terminal?

    I put my old hardrive in that had Ubuntu 9.04 in it and the touch screen worked...Although it needed calibrated but it worked fine.

    Good, so you have touch. I'm pretty sure the X60t only has 1FGT not 2FGT, so multi-touch for the Wacom digitizer doesn't enter in it. Besides that's very old and you do not want to use a xorg.conf.

    The command you want to enter into the terminal is:
    Code:
    xinput list

    It started working...and I do not even know what I did exactly...But it needs calibrated. Any good way to do that?

    I rebooted the computer and it does not work at all again.

    Re: Ibm x60 laptop touchscreen...

    Great! I was going to suggest we try using a xsetwacom set command to turn touch on:
    Code:
    xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet touch" Touch on
    That should be the default set by the xf86-input-wacom X driver, but it seems like a few ISDV4 serial tablet PCs need that in Natty for some reason.

    You can calibrate with xinput_calibrator which is called xinput-calibrator in Natty's Universe repository. Then once you get the coordinates you can use xsetwacom commands for that, see: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...le=Calibration. I also have a sample xsetwacom.sh for the X61t which should work for the X60t in post #2 on the Bamboo P&T HOW TO. Be sure to check part IV. because the xsetwacom parameter names change depending on the version of xf86-input-wacom you have:
    Code:
    xsetwacom -V

    Thanks. Although I am having a little trouble calibrating it. And every time I restart the computer the touch turns of again lol.
    I am also having trouble getting in the numbers...Now my touchscreen is really off....
    I look at your file and this is for the tablet touch input...
    ## Remove comments if your X61t has touch
    ## touch = ID 15 = "Serial Wacom Tablet touch"
    #xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet touch" Touch "on" # default, or "off"
    #xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet touch" Suppress "4" # data pt.s trimmed, default is 4, 0-20
    #xsetwacom set "Serial Wacom Tablet touch" RawSample "2" # data pt.s filtered, default is 2, 0-100
    #xsetwacom set 15 ClickForce "27" # pressure, default is 27, range is 0-2047
    ##xsetwacom set 15 Threshold "27" # pressure, default is 27, range is 0-2047
    #xsetwacom set 15 Mode "Absolute" # or Relative cursor movement
    #xsetwacom set 15 TapTime "250" # default is 250 ms
    #xsetwacom set 15 Button1 "1"
    # sample X61t coordinates
    #xsetwacom set 13 topx "?"
    #xsetwacom set 13 topy "?"
    #xsetwacom set 13 bottomx "?"
    #xsetwacom set 13 bottomy "?"

    I do not see the coordinates...And when I enter the ones I made from attempting to calibrate my screen early the mouse instantly jumps to the bottom of the screen. Grrrr lol
    Any advice? I am not very familiar with this lol.
