    Hi Midnight_Sun,

    Oops! Try substituting in glurgle's calibration first:
    Code:
    	Option		"TopX"		"0"
    	Option		"TopY"		"0"
    	Option		"BottomX"	"9600"
    	Option		"BottomY"	"7200"
    If that doesn't work try commenting out (#) the four lines with the coordinates. And if that doesn't work try moving them back to touch.

    So, I've corrected the numbers, and things got better.
    It is still a bit miscalibrated, but far less than before.
    The funny is, that the pointer gets more and more correct when I move towards the top left corner, and less and less accurate in bottom right direction.
    Rotation still ok.

    Hi Midnight_Sun,

    Alright! This next step should also be low risk. Try commenting out in stylus and touch sections:
    Code:
    Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    like so:
    Code:
    #Option "ForceDevice" "ISDV4"
    This line is for serial tablets and I don't think it is doing anything. Keeper of the Keys and I think someone else said things still worked with it removed.

    When we get finished with xorg.conf we should be able to improve your calibration and make it spot on.

    Cool!

    Commented out, and still alive.
    Stylus quite well calibrated! Completely usable!

    Besides: IÍve forgot to mention: touch is absolutely not working ever since. (Not since the last change, but since the beginning, but I've did not pay much attention to it.)

    Hi Midnight_Sun,

    Good deal.

    So your saying that touch went out with the test 1 xorg.conf? Not sure why but I have a few ideas. Rather than backtracking let's keep going. Maybe we can get it back.

    Again these should be low risk. But we're starting to get into the uncertain area. This line should be default:
    Code:
    Option "Mode" "Absolute"
    in both the stylus and touch sections. As should this line in stylus:
    Code:
    Option "TPCButton" "on"
    So let's comment them out also. If that works...

    Now we get into the exciting area of real breakage risk!

    Seriously miscalibrated (nearly a whole screen) but still works ok.

    Hi Midnight_Sun,

    Interesting, that shouldn't have happened. Let's ignore it for now and forge on.

    So now real risk of breakage. In the touch section remove the comment from:
    Code:
    # Option "USB" "on"
    to
    Code:
    Option "USB" "on"
    and comment out:
    Code:
    Option "Touch" "on"
    to
    Code:
    #Option "Touch" "on"
    My fingers are crossed.

    You've crossed well.
    NOTHING had happened. Not a single change... (besides I'm available under Skype or Gtalk if YOu find that better. More speedy I think...)

    Okay, Mister2, I've followed your advice....cept what do I do with the files the make command created? I patched the 2.6.30 hp-wmi.c with your patch, then used your makefile....I just don't know what to do with it now.

    EDIT:

    I apologize. I just had to do a search to find where the original hp-wmi.ko was located, then switch them out.

    And an other thing - might be of interest. People were looking for the possible keykodes of the sidebuttons beside the screen of tx2z.
    The buttons do not give a sign under xev, but if You use the remote control thingy, the middle "wave" formed button gives the following keykode:

    Code:
    KeyRelease event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x3200001,
        root 0x9d, subw 0x0, time 1296358, (358,203), root:(368,300),
        state 0x4, keycode 37 (keysym 0xffe3, Control_L), same_screen YES,
        XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
        XFilterEvent returns: False
