I am porting android to my ARM9 device and am having problems getting
the touchscreen to work. On my device the touchpanel driver passes
absolute X/Y co-ordinate values to the kernel input subsystem. When i
touch the screen, more often than not , nothing happens. But on rare
occassions the main screen left/right scroll button might move or the
browser "google search" button might get pressed - but even for this i
have to give a real good thumb press, a firm tap is not enough.
I ran open source program evtest (which is an input event tester) and
it reported the co-ordinates of all my touches.
I then ran strace for the zygote process - i noticed that all of my
taps/touches/presses are read() by some thread which opens the /dev/
input/event1 device, but no action is taken on the reported events.
I also modified the (touchpanel) hardware reported raw X/Y co-ordinate
values so that they correspond to the screen size (640x480 landscape)
and then passed these values to the kernel input subsytem, but there
was no change in behaviour.
I have read on some posts about "porting tslib" - what is this for ?
Is it required here ? Also some posts mention "normarlization of the
coordination" and "auto calibration using sysfs" - what do they
Any pointers/help would be appreciated
