PenMount setup finished!

How to setup PenMount driver on Xorg

The install script generates an input entry for the PenMount device and the configuration section for it, it could be modified by hand.

The ServerLayout entry looks like:

Section "ServerLayout"
      ...
      InputDevice    "Penmount" "AlwaysCore"
EndSection

And the Template:InputDevice entry looks like:

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"PenMount"
	Driver		"penmount"
	Option		"Protocol"		"PM9000"
	Option		"Device"		"/dev/ttyS3"
	Option		"PMode"			"2"
	Option		"MinX"			"10"
	Option		"MaxX"			"1000"
	Option		"MinY"			"10"
	Option		"MaxY"			"1000"
	Option		"ADBit"			"10"
	Option		"Baudrate"		"19200"
	Option		"Beep"			"0"	#  0 = no beep, 1 = beep enabled
	Option		"PressVol"		"100"	#  volume of beep (press event)
	Option		"PressPitch"		"880"	#  pitch of beep (press event)
	Option		"PressDur"		"15"	#  length of beep in 10ms (press event)
	Option		"ReleaseVol"		"0"	#  volume of beep (release event)
	Option		"ReleasePitch"		"1200"	#  pitch of beep (release event)
	Option		"ReleaseDur"		"10"	#  len of beep in 10ms (release event)
	Option		"RightButton"		"0"	#  right button active in ms
	Option		"RightButtonStart"	"500"	#  right button active in ms
	Option		"RightButtonEnd"	"900"	#  right button inactive in ms

How to calibrate the PenMount touchscreen

Just run the calibration tool telling it how many points you'd like to test, that could be 4,9,16 or 25. Suppose we want to calibrate touching only 4 points (the actual 4 screen corners), then issue the command:

# /usr/local/penmount/adv-calib 4

On recent versions of penmount driver the calibration tool is invoked with the command:

# /usr/sbin/gCal 4

RPM Driver

The driver for PenMount devices can also being installed from Bashlinux repository.

# yum install xorg-x11-drv-penmount-iei

The name has -iei at the end to avoid confusions with the regular "non-working" rpm available in base repositories of standard Linux distributions
