    Easy Question- How do I calibrate my touchscreen?

    Hi all,

    I have an eGalax touchscreen which I installed using the xserver-xorg-input-evtouch package. Now touching the screen makes the mouse pointer move in all sorts of random directions.

    What I want, of course, is for the mouse pointer to move to the point where I touched the screen. Typically this is called 'calibration'. Maybe there's a program to run or something, but I can't find it. how do I calibrate my touch screen?

    I'm running Jaunty 9.04 so there is no 'System -> Administration -> Calibrate Touchscreen' program.

    you can see if you can find the program for 9.04 or just upgrade to 9.10.

    theres a program called touchcal heres the download link you have to compile from source though.

    Thanks for the link-- unfortunately, touchcal only supports a few specific touchscreens (and no USB touchscreens) so it doesn't work for me.

    Can anyone tell me the name of the binary that gets run from the 'System -> Administration -> Calibrate Touchscreen' program on karmic? Maybe I can just install that binary.
