NAME calcomp - Calcomp input driver

SYNOPSIS Section "InputDevice" Identifier "idevname" Driver "calcomp" Option "Device" "devpath" ... EndSection

DESCRIPTION calcomp is an Xorg input driver for Calcomp devices.

The calcomp driver functions as a pointer input device, and may be used as the X servers core pointer.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE This driver supports the Calcomp binary format used by the Drawing Board II and III series.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS Please refer to xorg.conf(5x) for general configuration details and for options that can be used with all input drivers. This section only covers configuration details specific to this driver.

Both the 3 button stylus and the 4- or 16 button lens cursors can be used without changing the configuration file. Support for pressure sen- sitivity has not been tested, so the solid-tip stylus will probably not work.

This device supports the following entries:

Option "Device" "path" sets the path to the special file which represents the serial line where the tablet is plugged. This option is mandatory.

Option "Cursor" "Stylus"|"Puck" this option is supported for backward compatibility only, but it should not be necessary.

Option "DeviceName" "name" sets the name of the X device. Some user-space programs may require a fixed name, e.g. TABLET, to recognize the digi- tizer.

Option "Mode" "Relative"|"Absolute" sets the mode of the device. Currently only Absolute mode is supported.

Option "Pressure" "on" enables pressure reporting if your tablet supports it. This option is untested and may not work.

Option "AlwaysCore" "on" enables the sharing of the core pointer. When this feature is enabled, the device will take control of the core pointer (and thus will emit core events) and at the same time will be able, when asked so, to report extended events.

Option "MinX" "number" X coordinate of the bottom left corner of the active zone.

Option "MinY" "number" Y coordinate of the bottom left corner of the active zone.

Option "MaxX" "Inumber" X coordinate of the top right corner of the active zone.

Option "MaxY" "number" Y coordinate of the top right corner of the active zone.

Option "DebugLevel" number sets the level of debugging info reported.
