DESCRIPTION

fpit is an Xorg input driver for Fujitsu Stylistic Tablet PCs.

The fpit driver functions as a pointer input device, and may be used as the X server's core pointer.  

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

This driver supports the touchscreen of the Stylistic LT and (with special options) of the Stylistic 500, 1000 and 2300.

Under Linux the Fujitsus serial port is not, by default, detected. Therefore the following must be added to one of your start-up scripts. (Either one of the X scripts, or to rc.local or similar).

setserial /dev/ttyS3 autoconfig
setserial /dev/ttyS3 IRQ 15 baud_base 115200 port 0xfce8

This driver now supports Stylistic 3400 (and possibly other passive-pen systems) with a special "Passive" paramter. Try this serial configuration for the 3400:

setserial /dev/ttyS3 autoconfig
setserial /dev/ttyS3 uart 16450 irq 5 port 0xfd68

 

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.

The device supports the following options:

Option MaximumXPosition number
Sets the maximum X position, use this to calibrate your touchscreen's right hand edge.
Option MinimumXPosition number
Sets the minimum X position, use this to calibrate your touchscreen's left hand edge.
Option MaximumYPosition number
Option MinimumYPosition number
Same as for X axis, but for Y axis.
Option InvertX
Option InvertY
Invert the specified axis.
Option SwapXY
Swap the X and Y axis.
Option Rotate CW
Option Rotate CWW Manipulate the invert and swap options to match screen rotations.
Option DeviceName name
Option DeviceName name sets the name of the X device.
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. You can use the last available integer feedback to control this feature. When the value of the feedback is zero, the feature is disabled. The feature is enabled for any other value.
Option DebugLevel number
sets the level of debugging info reported.
Option BaudRate 38400, 19200 or 9600 (default)
changes the serial link speed.
Option Passive
decodes the passive pen.

Example, for Stylistic LT setup is:

Section N'34'InputDeviceN'34'
  Identifier N'34'mouse0N'34'
  Driver N'34'fpitN'34'
  Option N'34'DeviceN'34'   N'34'/dev/ttyS3N'34'
EndSection

And for other Stylistic devices try:

Section N'34'InputDeviceN'34'
  Identifier N'34'mouse0N'34'
  Driver N'34'fpitN'34'
  Option N'34'DeviceN'34'   N'34'/dev/ttyS3N'34'
  Option N'34'BaudRateN'34' N'34'19200N'34'
  Option N'34'MaximumXPositionN'34' N'34'6250N'34'
  Option N'34'MaximumYPositionN'34' N'34'4950N'34'
  Option N'34'MinimumXPositionN'34' N'34'130N'34'
  Option N'34'MinimumYPositionN'34' N'34'0N'34'
  Option N'34'InvertYN'34'
EndSection

For Stylistic 3400:

Section N'34'InputDeviceN'34'
  Identifier N'34'mouse0N'34'
  Driver N'34'fpitN'34'
  Option N'34'DeviceN'34'   N'34'/dev/ttyS3N'34'
  Option N'34'BaudRateN'34' N'34'9600N'34'
  Option N'34'MaximumXPositionN'34' N'34'4070N'34'
  Option N'34'MaximumYPositionN'34' N'34'4020N'34'
  Option N'34'MinimumXPositionN'34' N'34'0N'34'
  Option N'34'MinimumYPositionN'34' N'34'0N'34'
  Option N'34'PassiveN'34'
  Option N'34'SendCoreEventsN'34'
