ts_uinput - Man Page

A daemon program creating a tslib-filtered and calibrated input event device


ts_uinput [OPTION]


ts_uinput provides an alternative for using tslib's API in order to get filtered and calibrated touch screen inputs. Using Linux' uinput system, it creates an input event device to be used in your environment. It uses ts_read_mt() and thus supports single and multi touch.

-d,  --daemonize

Start ts_uinput as a daemon and return. The sysfs' input device name of the newly created device is printed to stdout before returning. If --verbose is chosen too, the /dev/input/eventX path to the device node is printed.

-v,  --verbose

Print debug information to stdout and stderr. Only if --daemonize is not chosen. If used together with --daemonize, the path to the created input event device node /dev/input/eventX is printed before the program forks and returns.

-n,  --name

Set the name of the new input event device. Default: ts_uinput.

-i,  --idev

Explicitly choose the original input event device for tslib to use. Default: the environment variable TSLIB_TSDEVICE's value.

-f,  --fbdev

Explicitly choose the framebuffer device to use. Default: the environment variable TSLIB_FBDEVICE's value.

-s,  --slots

Explicitly set the possible concurrent touch contacts supported. May be only needed if the original input device doesn't report it.

-b,  --nofb

Read the screen resolution values from the input device, not the framebuffer device.
