       fpit - Fujitsu Stylistic input driver

       Section "InputDevice"
	 Identifier "idevname"
	 Driver "fpit"
	 Option "Device"   "devpath"

       fpit is an Xorg input driver for Fujitsu Stylistic Tablet PCs.

       The fpit driver functions as a pointer input device, and may be used as
       the X server's core pointer.

       This driver supports the touchscreen of the Stylistic LT and (with spe‐
       cial options) of the Stylistic 500, 1000, 1200, 2300, and 3400.	Modern
       FinePoint MP800 devices will also work with this driver.

       Under Linux the Fujitsu's serial port is	 not,  by  default,  detected.
       Therefore  the  port  must  be  configured manually as described in the
       accompanying readme.txt file.

       For example, add the following to your startup  scripts	for  Stylistic
       xx00 devices:

       setserial /dev/ttyS3 autoconfig

       setserial /dev/ttyS3 IRQ 15 baud_base 115200 port 0xfce8

       This driver now supports Stylistic 3400 (and possibly other passive-pen
       systems) with a special "Passive" paramter. Try this serial  configura‐
       tion for the 3400:

       setserial /dev/ttyS3 autoconfig

       setserial /dev/ttyS3 uart 16450 irq 5 port 0xfd68

       Please refer to xorg.conf(5x) for general configuration details and for
       options that can be used with all input	drivers.   This	 section  only
       covers configuration details specific to this driver.

       The device supports the following options:

	       Option "MaximumXPosition" "number"
		   Sets	 the  maximum  X  position, use this to calibrate your
		   touchscreen's right hand edge.

	       Option "MinimumXPosition" "number"
		   Sets the minimum X position, use  this  to  calibrate  your
		   touchscreen's left hand edge.

	       Option "MaximumYPosition" "number"

	       Option "MinimumYPosition" "number"
		   Same as for X axis, but for Y axis.

	       Option "InvertX"

	       Option "InvertY"
		   Invert the specified axis.

	       Option "SwapXY"
		   Swap the X and Y axis (after inversions).

	       Option "Rotate" "CW"
		   Option  "Rotate"  "CWW"  Manipulate	the  invert  and  swap
		   options to match screen rotations. (Will  behave  strangely
		   if combined with invert or swap options.)  New users should
		   consider the "TrackRandR" option instead.

	       Option "DeviceName" "name"
		   Option "DeviceName" "name" sets the name of the X device.

	       Option "AlwaysCore" "on"
		   enables the sharing of the core pointer. When this  feature
		   is  enabled,	 the  device  will  take  control  of the core
		   pointer (and thus will emit core events) and	 at  the  same
		   time	 will  be  able,  when	asked  so,  to report extended
		   events.  You can use the last available integer feedback to
		   control  this  feature.  When  the value of the feedback is
		   zero, the feature is disabled. The feature is  enabled  for
		   any other value.

	       Option "DebugLevel" number
		   sets the level of debugging info reported.

	       Option "BaudRate" "38400", "19200" (default) or "9600"
		   changes the serial link speed.

	       Option "Passive"
		   decodes the passive pen.  Option "TrackRandR" automatically
		   keeps the cursor synchronized with the pen's position, even
		   when	 the  screen  is  resized or rotated. (Recommended for
		   tablet PC's.)

       Example, for Stylistic LT setup is:
       Section "InputDevice"
	 Identifier "mouse0"
	 Driver "fpit"
	 Option "Device"   "/dev/ttyS3"
	 # Option "TrackRandR"

       And for other Stylistic devices try:
       Section "InputDevice"
	 Identifier "mouse0"
	 Driver "fpit"
	 Option "Device"   "/dev/ttyS3"
	 Option "BaudRate" "19200"
	 Option "MaximumXPosition" "6250"
	 Option "MaximumYPosition" "4950"
	 Option "MinimumXPosition" "130"
	 Option "MinimumYPosition" "0"
	 Option "InvertY"
	 # Option "TrackRandR"

       For Stylistic 3400:
       Section "InputDevice"
	 Identifier "mouse0"
	 Driver "fpit"
	 Option "Device"   "/dev/ttyS3"
	 Option "BaudRate" "9600"
	 Option "MaximumXPosition" "4070"
	 Option "MaximumYPosition" "4020"
	 Option "MinimumXPosition" "0"
	 Option "MinimumYPosition" "0"
	 Option "Passive"
	 Option "SendCoreEvents"
	 # Option "TrackRandR"
