  • How to calibrate touch screen:

Attention: Raspbian Image file must be newer than 2016-03-18, it contains touch screen's driver within the kernel, but the old version does not. After imaging the TF card and reboot your raspberry Pi, please login system and open a terminal and typing following command to install the calibration software.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install xinput libx11-dev libxext-dev x11proto-input-dev evtest dh-autoreconf libts-bin libxi-dev

And then, you can calibrate as following step:



cd ~
git clone https://github.com/tias/xinput_calibrator
cd ~/xinput_calibrator
sudo ./autogen.sh
sudo make
sudo make install
Then typing this command to calibrate your touch screen:
DISPLAY=:0.0 xinput_calibrator
And press enter, you will find there is a calibration pannel on your touch screen like this:

You should point at the red cross on your touch screen within 60s to calibrate touch screen. After that, you will see some output on your terminal, please write it into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf file by vim.tiny command:
this is an example:

Please pay attention to that red box with the picture.


  • Generate the configuration file with 2 steps:

sudo mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
sudo vim.tiny /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf
And press "i" means insert,and copy the parameters between "Section" to "EndSection" and paste into this file, it will be read by system when you reboot system.
Then press "ESC" and typing ":wq" to save and quit. Reboot your Raspberry Pi after you've finished the steps that I wrote before. have fun.

How to use script to calibrate touch screen

It is a easy way to calibrate touch screen by using script, so if you do not know much about the command line operation, you can follow the steps to calibrate your touch screen.
