What touch screen model do you have? – Li Lo Aug 20 '10 at 20:41

Quotation from

The 10-wacom.conf file that is referenced is the one in /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/

The calibration for a TX2500's stylus is:

Option "TopX" "225" Option "TopY" "225" Option "BottomX" "26300" Option "BottomY" "16375" The calibration for a TX2500's touch is:

Option "TopX" "200" Option "TopY" "225" Option "BottomX" "4000" Option "BottomY" "3875" The calibration for a TX2z's stylus and touch is:

Option "TopX" "0" Option "TopY" "0" Option "BottomX" "9600" Option "BottomY" "7200" You can add that to the 10-wacom.conf, or if that fails to a section in xorg.conf. I think the wacom driver is suppose to auto-calibrate your device. Often Xorg.0.log in /var/log has the coordinates when the driver initiates the device.

The Rotation HOW TO has scripts. Just remember there has been a change in the device name conventions. Enter 'xinput --list' in a terminal to get the new device name and substitute it in the scripts (with the quotes) where it says stylus or touch, etc. You can also use the device ID numbers.

Can't you just go to the Wacom settings item in Control Center? – Cumulus007 Jul 21 '12 at 21:36
