I am having custom board with fxos8700 sensor. Sensor is getting probed successfully. Also using i2c-tools i am getting data from sensor. But i could not find sensor entry under /dev/input/eventX of linux. I can see /dev/FreescaleAccelerometer entry.
What could be reason for this?? Also are there any applications (games) through which i can verify accelerometer data??
Thanks for the reply. I am not using android platform. I am working on ubuntu core system.
I have gone through the driver you have shared, it looks different than the one which i have in my linux kernel.
I am using 3.14.52 kernel.
You can use the evtest application for testing the senor.
Maybe it's necessary to enable the sensor, for example enabling FXOS8700 on the i.MX7D SabreSD board:
$ echo 1 > /sys/devices/virtual/misc/FreescaleAccelerometer/enable
$ echo 1 > /sys/devices/virtual/misc/FreescaleMagnetometer/enable
Thanks for your reply. But i do not have FreescaleAccelerometer under /sys/devices/virtual/misc/ path.
Do you know wt could be the reason?
