Same thing. I'd ignore it unless your system is on fire.

ICS6, that's like 100 gallons per minute? Hehe, if you ever shoot one of those things at a Toughbook, post a video. :boing:

Code:
xinput_calibrator --output-type xorg.conf.d --output-filename /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf


This single line in terminal starts the GUI (calibrator) and writes a file called 99-calibration.conf in the right place. Normally I run it twice. First time it does not match the X marks exactly. So for a repeat...you will be in the right place in a terminal, up arrow goes to last command entered, tap enter...and hey presto. Thanks to kodeniner.

Subject is discussed in earlier pages of this thread. This is a subtle BUMP so I could find it easier.

Debian Package MakuluLinux-Aero-10
Requires superuser privileges or you get errors....as do others (all?)

I used /usr/share etc. because it was being utilized by other .conf files.

To use /etc/X11 etc. a
Code:
 mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
# would need to be added. IOW make a directory.

Work in progress. edit:1486 hits? who's peeking?...One or more words in this thread are very popular in the search engines...

Jeff

Blah, I don't know why I was screwing around in BIOS and decided to change the Touchscreen Mode from Auto to "Touchscreen Mode". It threw off my calibration so I decided to put it back to Auto and re-ran xinput-calibrator. It's still completely borked!

Code:
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf
#yeah there's a sudo :)
or
Code:
rm /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf
#if using that one.
Leave machine on auto and restart twice. The MK3 on second go should chose auto/ tablet.

Code:
sudo xinput_calibrator 
#evdev minimums should be back at zero. Calibrate twice for precision.

I do this all the time when switching to touchscreen bios units(MK1) with a caddy from a MK2 or 3. :eek:

Touch Guy Trick.
If you press the TS in upper left and it dives down to the right but STAYS ON THE SCREEN....CHECK YOUR BIOS SETTING FIRST.
WHY? Touchscreen numbers are four times bigger than tablet.

Ah, the trick was to remove the old conf file. The wildly differing values between tablet and touchscreen mode makes the calibrator freak out with a "misclick" error. Thanks!

Notes using MX-14.4, when doing the calibration touchscreen, I ran this code:
sudo mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ #creates a directory...only done once per machine
In terminal, here's what it says: "tough@tough:~
$ sudo mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ #creates a directory...only done once per machine
[sudo] password for tough:
mkdir: cannot create directory `/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/': File exists"
This is great news, some of the less known distributions are including this directory.
I added the xinput-calibration program of Tias Guns from this source, choosing debian testing package: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Softwar ... calibrator
Package manager loads after opening program in your downloads folder. She does all the work for you and then you are ready to calibrate your touchscreen, as Jeff has so eloquently described in previous posts. Thanks again from right to left. :salute:
