Chapter 2. Installing TouchKit
TouchKit is software, which contains drivers and two utilities of the touch panel
controllers for RS232, PS/2 and USB on Linux operation system. The two utilities are
as follows:
•
Configuration support
The calibration and draw test of touch panel are done by this utility.
•
Right button support
This is utility for emulating the right and left button of mouse through controlling
touch panel. Users can toggle between right or left mouse buttons by this utility.
We provide two way to install the driver, one is automatic installation and the other is
install manually.
Automatic Installation
Before install TouchKit for Linux, please make sure that (1) users have root privilege
and that (2) X window system has been configured correctly.
TouchKit driver package was compressed with uuencode software, it needs
uudecode to extract it. The uuencode/uudecode software was include in the package
sharutils-x.x.x-xx.xxxx.rpm
This package should be found in the Linux CD disc or in Touchkit driver CD disc.
Follow these steps to install TouchKit for Linux. ( For ex. InMandrake 9.x )
1. Put the TouchKit CD to CD-ROM and mount it on Linux operation system.
e.g. with command: mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
2. Change directory to /mnt/cdrom/Linux/Mandrake9
3. Launch the installation script file ( touchkit.setup.sh or touchkit.setupxxx.sh )
with command “sh [scrip file name]”. For ex. “sh touchkit.setup.sh”
4. The script will extract the driver source files to the directory “/tmp/touchkit”, and
start driver installation.

Manual Installation
For those Linux distribution that does not support RPM, the TouchKit driver can be
installed manually. Users can extract the driver source code firstly. Unzip
“touchkit.tgz” to a temp working folder.
Then, copy the driver files to the specific directory and configure the setting for X
window.
1.
Locate the system X window configuration file in /etc/X11. The setting file name
maybe “XF86Config”( for most X 3.x ), “XF86Config-4”( for most X4.x) , or
“Xorg.conf”( for most Xorg 6.x ), etc. Please make sure which file is used for X
window configuration before adding setting configuration for TouchKit.
2.
Add setting script to the X window configuration file. Edit the configuration file
with any editor and add the script as below.
2.1) For X window 3.x:
Add a section as below in the X window configuration file
## TouchKit section begin (Please do NOT edit this section!!) ##
Section "Module"
Load "xf86TouchKit.so"
EndSection
Section "Xinput"
SubSection "touchkitpanel"
Port "/dev/tkdat0"
DeviceName "tpanel"
AlwaysCore
DebugLevel 0
EndSubSection
EndSection
## TouchKit section end ##

2.2) For X window 4.x and Xorg 6.x:
Add the below script in the Section “ServerLayout”
InputDevice “TKPANEL” “SendCoreEvents”
Then, add a new section for TouchKit
## TouchKit section begin ( Please do NOT edit this section!! ) ##
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "TKPANEL"
Driver "touchkit"
Option "Device" "/dev/tkdat0"
Option "DebugLevel" "0"
EndSection
## TouchKit section end ##
3.
Copy daemon to the target directory and change its mode.
cp tpaneld /usr/bin
chmod 4755 /usr/bin/tpaneld
4.
Copy X module to the target directory.
4.1) for X window 3.x:
cp xf86TouchKit.so /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input
4.2) for X Window 4.x or Xorg 6.x:
cp touchkit_drv.o /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input
5.
Edit the daemon configuration file “/etc/tpaneld.conf”. If this file was not exist,
create a new file with the file name “tpaneld.conf“. The configuration should
contains some parameters description as below
MouseMode = DRAWING
DblClickSpeed = 18
DblClickArea = 30
RclickTool = 0

Sound = 0
Port = /dev/ttyS0
Port = /dev/ttyS1
Port = /dev/psaux
Port = /dev/usb/tkpanel0
Port = /dev/usb/tkpanel1
The daemon tpaneld will scan the ports list in the configuration file to check if
touchscreen controller exist or not. /dev/usb/tkpanel0 and /dev/usb/tkpanel1
are used for USB model only.
6.
Copy the calibration files. The calibration files should be found in the
subdirectory of touchkit/diag after the driver packages was extracted.
/touchkit/diag/4pcal/4pcal is the 4 points calibration utility.
/touchkit/diag/25pcal/25pcal is the 25 points calibration utility.
/touchkit/diag/drawtest is the utility for draw testing.
Users can do calibration or draw test with these utility.
For ex. /touchkit/diag/4pcal/4pcal /dev/ttyS0 for 4 points calibration with the
device on /dev/ttyS0.
7.
Rebuild the kernel module for USB. This is needed for USB model. Follow below
steps to rebuild the kernel module “tkusb.o” ( for kernel before 2.4.x ) or
“tkusb.ko”( for kernel 2.6.x ).
7.1) Locate the extracted directory. And go to the subdirectory /touchkit/include
make new
7.2) change the directory to /touchkit/usb
make all
then the kernel module will be rebuild. ( The kernel source must be
installed and well configured ).
7.3) Copy the kernel module “tkusb.o”( kernel version before 2.4.x ) or
“tkusb.ko”( kernel version 2.6.x ) to the target directory.
For example, “/usr/bin”
7.4) Copy the user daemon usbpnpd to the target directory.
For example, cp usbpnpd /usr/bin

Chapter 3. Configuration Utility and Right Button Emulator
The touch-sensitive area of the panel and touch-sensitivity both can be modulated
through the configuration utility. Besides, the controller identification and device
activated shall be done first.
After installation TouchKit, execute touchcfg to start the configuration utility.
The Panel Candidate List, which contains by default two RS232, one PS/2 and two
USB devices, commands TouchKit driver which port to probe for controller. If a port
is occupied by other device, e.g. /dev/ttyS0(COM1) is used by a mouse, it is
recommended to Remove /dev/ttyS0 from the list, since the probe process would
interfere the operation of mouse.
If the users need other com port, for example com3, please go to /etc/tpaneld.conf
and add the sentence Port = /dev/ttyS2.
< tpaneld.conf >
MouseMode = DRAWING
DblClickSpeed = 18
DblClickArea = 30
RClickTool = 0
Sound = 0
Port = /dev/ttyS0
Port = /dev/ttyS1
Port = /dev/psaux

<Double Click Area>
Each one touch has its own touch tolerance once someone may not fix in one
point. So if users set the Double Click Area to <Smaller>, the panel will be very
sensitive about micro-move while users want to fix on a point. If users set it to
<Larger>, it tolerates the larger touch point movement while users want to point
at a fixed position.
