DESCRIPTION

        aiptek  is  an  Xorg  input driver for Aiptek HyperPen USB-based tablet
        devices.  This driver only supports the USB protocol,  and  only  under
        Linux; for RS-232C-based HyperPens, please see the "hyperpen" driver.
 
        The  aiptek driver functions as a pointer input device, and may be used
        as the X server’s core pointer.
        This driver supports the Aiptek HyperPen 4000U, 5000U, 6000U, 8000U and
        12000U USB-based input tablet on some Linux platforms.
        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.
 
        Multiple  instances of the Aiptek devices can cohabit. It can be useful
        to define multiple devices with different  active  zones.  Each  device
        supports the following entries:
 
                Option "Type" "stylus"|"eraser"|"cursor"
                    sets  the type of tool the device represent. This option is
                    mandatory.
 
                Option "Device" "path"
                    sets the path to the special file which  represents  serial
                    line  where  the tablet is plugged.  You have to specify it
                    for each subsection with the same value if you want to have
                    multiple  devices  with  the  same  tablet.  This option is
                    mandatory.
 
                Option "USB" "on"
                    specifies that you are using the  USB  bus  to  communicate
                    with your tablet.  This setting is mandatory, as USB is the
                    only protocol supported by this driver.
 
                Option "DeviceName" "name"
                    sets the name of the X device.
 
                Option "Mode" "Relative"|"Absolute"
                    sets the mode of the device.
 
                Option "HistorySize" "number"
                    sets the motion history size. By default the value is zero.
 
                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 "XTop" "number"
                    First of three sets of parameters to set the  active  zone.
                    This  sets the X coordinate of the top corner of the active
                    zone. "TopX" is a synonym.
 
                Option "YTop" "number"
                    First of three sets of parameters to set the  active  zone.
                    This  sets the Y coordinate of the top corner of the active
                    zone. "TopY" is a synonym.
 
                Option "XBottom" "Inumber"
                    First of three sets of parameters to set the  active  zone.
                    This  sets  the  X  coordinate  of the bottom corner of the

                    active zone. "BottomY" is a synonym.

                    This  sets the the X coordinate of the bottom corner of the
                    active zone. The Top X corner’s coordinate is fixed  at  0.
                    "MaxX" is a synonym.
 
                Option "YMax" "number"

                    This  sets  the  X  coordinate  of the bottom corner of the
                    active zone. Unlike others, this parameter is expressed  in
                    relative  coordinates from the "XOffset" parameter. "XSize"

                    Pressure  reports  either delivered in linearly incremental
                    values (default), or perturbed by  one  of  two  log-linear
                    algorithms ("soft" or "hard".)
 
                Option "KeepShape" "on"

                    according to TopX and TopY.  The bottom corner is  adjusted
                    to  keep the ratio width/height of the active zone the same
                    as the screen while maximizing the area  described  by  the
                    active  area  set of parameters, XTop/YTop/XBottom/YBottom,
                    XMax/YMax, or XOffset/YOffset/XSize/YSize.
 
                Option "DebugLevel" number
