Thanks a lot for your kind comment. I will do so.

Thank you very much again.
I have tried to update the suspicious packages from Ubuntu 20.04, or to
build from the source of the newer version.
They were not successful because the dependency was too complex and I've
concluded that I cannot recommend my customer to update so many packages
that may result in an unstable system.

Instead, I've made a daemon program that creates a virtual uinput touch
device and transforms touch positions according to its own transformation

I really appreciate your help. Without your help, I couldn't solve this

Best regards,
Hugh Chang
