Building

READ THIS CAREFULLY: There is no README with the driver, and this is the only documentation other than the source.

To build this driver, you will need the XFree86 v4.1 sources to suit your distribution.

  1. Unpack and patch your XFree sources
  2. Unpack x410-telxon1194.tgz in xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/input
  3. Edit xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/input/Imakefile and add telxon1194 to the SUBDIRS and DRIVERS lines.
  4. Build as normal.

Configuration

The Touchscreen requires that you specify the min and max X and Y ranges for your touchscreen over the viewable region of the screen.

You can find these using the tstest utility on the main section of this site.

Once you have determined these values, you need to need to add an InputDevice section to your XF86Config. You can use the Microtouch section as a reference, but here are my settings:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "touchscreen0"
    Driver     "telxon1194"
    Option     "Device"        "/dev/ttyS7"
    Option     "MinX"          "114"
    Option     "MaxX"          "3783"
    Option     "MinY"          "219"
    Option     "MaxY"          "3704"
    Option     "ScreenNumber"  "0"
    Option     "ReportingMode" "Scaled"
    Option     "SendCoreEvents"
EndSection

You will also need to make sure that you're loading the module in the Module section, and reference the touchscreen as your CorePointer in the ServerLayout section.
