Microtouch input manager for Photon

Syntax:

devi-microtouch [general_opts] 
                protocol* [protocol_opts]*
                device* [device_opts]*
                filter* [filter_opts]*

Runs on:

Note: When you use a devi- * driver, you need a calibration file. The calibration file is generated from the output produced by the calib utility:
calib > calib_file.txt

For more information, see the calib utility in the Utilities Reference, and Touchscreens in the Neutrino User's Guide.


General options:

-b
Prevent the use of the Ctrl-Alt-Shift-Backspace keychord to exit Photon (permitted by default).
-d device
Device (default: /dev/photon or $PHOTON).
-G
A graphics driver isn't required when starting a touchscreen driver. This option is useful when you're debugging.
-g input_group
Input group (default: 1).
-l
List the internal modules. Modules are listed in the following format where class is one of: D -- Device, P -- Protocol, or F -- Filter:
module name | date compiled | revision | class
    
-v[v]...
Verbose output. More v characters cause more verbosity.

The protocol and protocol_opts are:

microtouch [microtouch_opts] [fd fd_opts]
|[uart uart_opts]|[touchdev touchdev_opts] 
[touchusb touchusb_opts]_
