AFAIK there is no current support for run-time calibration of touchscreens in X
(although someone was posting about writing one on this list about a
month ago...).

You can use a program called "touchcal" that will output the
values (which represends the range of the touchscreen grid) that are needed
by the touchscreens InputDevice section in the config file.


Note: I dont know off hand where to get touchcal, I'm sure you'll find
it after a
short grep of the internet :-)
