Wandboard Elo Touchscreen resolution and calibration

Hello!

I'm quite new to ARM developemnt and I've run into some issues concerned with the Elo 1519L touchscreen.

The board is Wandboard Quad. Kernel version is 3.10.17, I have successfully compiled and loaded the driver found on the Elo website.

The screen is conneceted via HDMI-DSub converter. I hope it's not the source of problems. The screen runs in default on 1280x720 mode. How can i change it into 1366x768? I've tried changing the modes in drivers/video/mxc/mxc_edid.c and changing the kernel command line in U-Boot but got only worse - "no signal detected".

What's more the default 1280x720 resolution is not a nightmare, unless the touch would work properly. The touch cant cover the whole display image. How can I perform calibration? Is there some layer that I can add to the image or something?

Thanks in advance,

Pedro

Hi pedropl

seems with 1366x768 situaton may be as with

1024x768, it is not a CEA mode, as supported modes are given in

sect.33.4.3 Supported Video Mode  IMX6DQRM

regarding calibration one can check Elo 1519L driver manual below

Jarltech.com - Download-Area: Manuals, Drivers and Tools

to re-calibrate the touchscreen, usually one can simply delete the /usr/etc/pointercal file

so that the screen calibration procedure will be started at next GUI startup and new

pointercal file will be created.

Best regards

Thank you for your response. The documentation gave me a good tip that the resolution isn't an easy issue to achieve.

Regarding calibration, your are 100% right. Finally I was able to achieve it the way you say, but it seems it started to work only after I enabled HID_MULTITOUCH module in the kernel.
