Note: When you use a devi-* driver for a touchscreen device, 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:

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 input_group
Input group (default: 1).
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
-t factor
The throttle factor in ms (default 0).
Verbose output. More v characters cause more verbosity.

The protocol and protocol_opts are:

dyna [dyna_opts]  [fd fd_opts]|[uart uart_opts]

The protocol modules and their options are:

The device modules and their options are:

The filter modules and their options are:


The devi-dyna command starts the Dyna input manager for Photon.
