Hardware / Itronix Go Book VR1 IX600 Touchscreen
« on: November 10, 2019, 12:11:29 pm »
I have a couple of these old hardened Cop Car laptops.
Not powerful enough for modern Windoze, but I have tried several linux distros on them and have found Peppermint 10 32 bit to run very well, and finds all the hardware so far, except for the pen based touchscreen.
I can get it to work with information from: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touchscreen
Using inputattach and xinput-calibrator manually, it is very accurate and responsive single touch input, and will be helpful for the use I have in mind, IE: OpenCPN chartplotter navigation.
Units have a builtin GPS as well, and that is another story.
So, I have tried various methods to get the inputattach and the calibration settings to autostart for all users, to no avail.
I see references to rc.local, but I don't think that is right for Bionic.
So does anyone know the proper way to autostart the inputattach and calibration for this Touch Screen?
I think I need something like:
Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/inputattach --daemon --always -t213 /dev/ttyS4
exit 0
  to autorun as a system application or daemon.
And I need to get the calibration details to the system at startup as well, as mentioned in the ubuntu wiki article.
Anybody know right places to put this code?
