fpit - Fujitsu Stylistic input driver


Section "InputDevice"
  Identifier "idevname"
  Driver "fpit"
  Option "Device"   "devpath"


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

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 callibrate your touchscreen's right hand edge.
Option "MinimumXPosition" "number"
Sets the minimum X position, use this to callibrate 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.

Example, for Stylistic LT setup is:

Section "InputDevice"
  Identifier "mouse0"
  Driver "fpit"
  Option "Device"   "/dev/ttyS3"

And for other Stylistic devices try:

Section "InputDevice"
  Identifier "mouse0"
  Driver "fpit"
  Option "Device"   "/dev/ttyS3"
  Option "BaudRate" "19200"
  Option "MaximumXPosition" "6250"
  Option "MaximumYPosition" "4950"
  Option "MinimumXPosition" "130"
  Option "MinimumYPosition" "0"
  Option "InvertY"
