Double input from touchscreen.

  • Hello all,

    I am having a problem with set up of the environment around my Qt app on Beaglebone Black. Embedded Linux system got created with Yocto project. Touchscreen seems to be working as I can calibrate it with ts_calibrate and later on successfully test it with ts_test.

    My Qt application is just a simple GUI with 2 buttons and it does show up successfully and normal mouse is working as it should. Problem appears whenever I try using touchscreen. I do experience a cursor movement as if it was sourced from two places at the same time - one source perfectly calibrated working exactly as it should, the second completely uncalibrated as if it was a raw a reading. Both sources meet perfectly in the upper left corner of the screen.

    Application "buttons" is started from a simple script where I try to initialize environment variables before execution. I am trying to use linuxfb platform with tslib. I do not have eglfs platform installed in my Qt environment.

    export QT_QPA_EGLFS_TSLIB=1
    export QT_QPA_FB_TSLIB=1
    export QT_QPA_GENERIC_PLUGINS=tslib:/dev/input/event0
    export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=linuxfb:fb=/dev/fb0
    export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib/qt/plugins
    export TSLIB_CALIBFILE='/etc/pointercal'
    export TSLIB_CONFFILE='/etc/ts.conf'
    export TSLIB_CONSOLEDEVICE='none'
    export TSLIB_FBDEVICE='/dev/fb0'
    export TSLIB_PLUGINDIR='/usr/lib/ts'
    export TSLIB_TSDEVICE='/dev/input/event0'
    /home/root/buttons source -platform linuxfb -plugin tslib
    #/home/root/buttons source
    exit 0

    My input devices show up as follow, where event0/mouse0 is the touch device over USB:

    root@bbb:~# ls -all /dev/input/by-id
    total 0
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 180 Sep 12 02:43 .

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   9 Sep 12 01:35 usb-WWW.PowerMCU.COM_Multi_Media_Development_Board_V1.0_6D8413964957e-mouse -> ../mouse0

    How to disable this erratic cursor source? How to diagnose the problem?

    I am very new to the embedded Linux development, so any guidance on would be really appreciated.
