To ensure that you can open the setup and navigate within it, the initial configuration should take place with a mouse and keyboard connected. The setup procedure with an on-screen keyboard is described below.
The touchscreen types currently supported are:
You will find the complete list of supported devices in the IGEL Linux 3rd Party Hardware Database.
If you enable the touchscreen function, the touchscreen must be calibrated first. Unless you enable this option, calibration will begin automatically after each system boot.
Enable this option if the mouse pointer moves vertically when you move your finger in a horizontal direction.
These values are determined by the calibration tool. However, you can also change them manually.
The maximum permitted time (in milliseconds) between two instances of contact in order to still be registered a single touch. When moving windows by drag-and-drop, for example, your contact with the screen may inadvertently be interrupted. Increasing this value prevents the thin client from registering two individual contacts in this case.
Determines how long (in milliseconds) the screen needs to be touched in order for the contact to be recognized.
Determines the speed of communication via the selected connection. (If in doubt, read the monitor manual.)
You can connect the touchscreen either to COM1 or COM2. Select your preferred connection here.
Click on this button once after changing the touchscreen type or to restore the default settings.
A list of the touchscreens currently supported by IGEL Linux can be found in the IGEL Linux 3rd Party Hardware Database.
The layout for the normal keyboard will also be used for the on-screen keyboard.
After launching the calibration program, you will see a pattern with calibration points which must be touched one after another.
