NAME
       palmax - Palmax (TR88L803) touchscreen driver

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

DESCRIPTION
       palmax is an XFree86 input driver for the Palmax PD1000/PD1100

       The  palmax  driver  functions  as  a  pointer input device, and is normally used as the X
       server's core pointer. It supports positioning and mouse  buttons  using  the  touchscreen
       display and lid buttons on the Palmax machines.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       Palmax  PD1000, Palmax PD1100. In theory also any other system using a TR88L803 wired to a
       serial port.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS
       Please refer to XF86Config(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 following driver options are supported

       Option "MinX" "integer"
	      Set the left hand X value from the touchscreen, for calibration.

       Option "MaxX" "integer"
	      Set the right hand X value from the touchscreen, for calibration.

       Option "MinY" "integer"
	      Set the top Y value from the touchscreen, for calibration.

       Option "MaxY" "integer"
	      Set the bottom Y value from the touchscreen, for calibration.

       Option "Screen" "integer"
	      The screen to attach to the touchscreen when running with  multiple  screens.   The
	      default is screen 0.

       Option "Device" "string"
	      The serial port that is attached to the touchscreen interface. On the Palmax PD1000
	      and PD1100 this is ttyS0.

       Option "DeviceName" "string"
	      Set the X11 device name for the touchscreen. This defaults to TOUCHSCREEN.

       Option "PortraitMode" "string"
	      Set the display orientation. The default is "landscape"  but  you  can  rotate  the
	      screen clockwise ("portrait") or anticlockwise ("portraitCCW").

       Option "SwapXY" "boolean"
	      Swap the X and Y values on the display. The default is false.

       Option "TapButton" "boolean"
	      Set  the touchscreen tap to act as mouse button 1. This allows single handed opera-
	      tion except when using the menu buttons. The default is false.

BUGS
       The driver has been tested on the Palmax systems, the defaults reflect the Palmax hardware
       and  should  work out of the box. No testing has been done on other systems using the same
       digitizer.

       Support for a double-tap menu button option would be nice.

       The smoothing algorithm would benefit from real mathematics.

       XFree86 needs a nice calibration tool.
