Touch screen calibration

  • This LCD can be calibrated using a program called xinput_calibrator
  • Install it with the commands:
cd Elecrow-LCD35
sudo dpkg -i -B xinput-calibrator_0.7.5-1_armhf.deb
  • Click the Men button on the task bar, choose Preference -> Calibrate Touchscreen.
  • Finish the touch calibration following the prompts. Maybe rebooting is required to make calibration active.
  • You can create a 99-calibration.conf file to save the touch parameters (not necessary if file exists).
/ect/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf
  • Save the touch parameters (may differ depending on LCD) to 99-calibration.conf, as shown in the picture:
