I installed Kubuntu 10.10 on a HP tx2675ee tablet PC (tx2500 series - single touch not multi touch). The touch screen and stylus both work out of the box, however the touch screen is way off calibration wise and the stylus is just a bit out of whack.

How do I calibrate these input methods?

There are posts here and elsewhere referring to editing this path:
/usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-wacom.conf, but on Kubuntu 10.10 I can't find that file or it's parent directory.



You could go an grab the xinput calibrator which will allow you to get the calibration values for the touchscreen. After that you can set those values using xinput.

You can acquire a full list of devices with xinput list, a list of all properties of the device with xinput list-props $device_id. There should be a property like Evdev Axis Calibration which you can set like this:

xinput set-prop 12 "Evdev Axis Calibration" 0 4132 0 4135
