gpm-microtouch-setup - Calibration program for Microtouch screens


This manual page documents briefly the gpm-microtouch-setup command.

This program calibrates Microtouch screens for use with gpm(8).

The gpm(8) daemon must already be running in order to run the program to work flawlessly, as the program stops and restarts gpm(8) internally (it depends on gpm(8) for correct serial port initialization). microtouch-setup uses /dev/mouse to access the serial port, so /dev/mouse should point to a "ttyS" device.


includes some information about the setup of a Microtouch screen with gpm(8).
