Since I've been reading a lot of PDF files and the keyboard of this lappy is just atrocious, is best to enable and calibrate touch screen support to obtain the best usage experience.
First, let's install the calibration program to detect your device manufacture name. This will be useful later when you want to set the default input device to Google Chrome.
$ sudo apt-get install xinput-calibrator
Run the calibration program, touch four points on your screen to calibrate your device, and save the result. As shown below, our touch screen device name is "ELAN Touchscreen" with id of 12.
$ xinput_calibrator Setting calibration data: 0, 3776, 0, 2112 Calibrating EVDEV driver for "ELAN Touchscreen" id=12 current calibration values (from XInput): min_x=0, max_x=3776 and min_y=0, max_y=2112 Doing dynamic recalibration: Setting calibration data: -15, 3795, 1, 2118 --> Making the calibration permanent <-- copy the snippet below into '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf' (/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ in some distro's) Section "InputClass" Identifier "calibration" MatchProduct "ELAN Touchscreen" Option "Calibration" "-15 3795 1 2118" Option "SwapAxes" "0" EndSection
Alternatively, we can find the device id of our touch screen device using the xinput command below. The device id we need is 12.
$ xinput list ⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad id=11 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ ELAN Touchscreen id=12 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ WebCam SC-10HDD13335N id=9 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=10 [slave keyboard (3)]
Lastly, we'll start Google Chrome browser by setting the input device id found above.
$ google-chrome --touch-devices=12
