If you ever tried to set up a touchscreen device in linux, you might have noticed that it's either working out of the box (besides some calibration) or is very tedious, especially when it isn't supported by the kernel. Introduction This article assumes that your touchscreen device is supported by the kernel (e.g. by the usbtouchscreen module). That means there exists a /dev/input/event* node for your device.

I've noticed several topics regarding how to correctly set the device access permissions so that software such as Weather Display can access the device without needing 'root' superuser privilege escalation. There is some confusion about the correct way to do it with many suggestions to manually change permissions of device nodes rather than set a system-wide automatically applied rule. I've responded to a couple but suspect the location of the information is not perfect for anyone finding my postings later.
udev replaces the functionality of both hotplug and hwdetect . "Udev is the device manager for the Linux kernel. Primarily, it manages device nodes in /dev . It is the successor of devfs and hotplug, which means that it handles the /dev directory and all user space actions when adding/removing devices, including firmware load." Source: Wikipedia article Udev loads kernel modules by utilizing coding parallelism to provide a potential performance advantage versus loading these modules serially.
Translation(s) : English - Français - Italiano - Русский udev is a replacement for the Device File System ( DevFS ) starting with the Linux 2.6 kernel series. It allows you to identify devices based on their properties, like vendor ID and device ID, dynamically. udev runs in userspace (as opposed to devfs which was executed in kernel space). udev allows for rules that specify what name is given to a device, regardless of which port is plugged into.

A generic touchscreen calibration program for X.Org xinput_calibrator is created to fill the gap of touchscreen calibration software, featuring: works for any standard Xorg touchscreen driver (uses XInput protocol) mis-click detection (prevents bogus calibration) dynamically recalibrates the evdev driver outputs the calibration as xorg.conf.d snippet or HAL policy file and more For some background information on Xorg's touchscreen handling, see this short article . The application is stable and with packaging support. Any help getting it in distributions is greatly appreciated, you can contact me at email@example.com
This is an overview of how touchscreen devices are handled under linux. If you discover anything mentioned on this page outdated, please tell me at tias@@@ulyssis.org (one @). Overview Basically, there is a kernel module and an Xorg driver involved: the kernel module talks to the hardware and exports it as an input device, the Xorg driver reads the input device and turns it into a pointer.

Over the past couple of days, I’ve been trying to figure out how input in Linux works on modern systems. There are lots of small pieces at various levels, and it’s hard to understand how they all interact. Things are not helped by the fact that things have changed quite a bit over the past couple of years as HAL — which I helped write — has been giving way to udev , and existing literature is largely out of date. This is my attempt at understanding how things work today, in the Ubuntu Lucid release. kernel In the Linux kernel’s input system, there are two pieces: the device driver and the event driver .
