NAME
       aiptek - Aiptek USB Digital Tablet Input Driver for Linux

SYNOPSIS
       Section "InputDevice"
	 Identifier "idevname"
	 Driver "aiptek"
	 Option "Device"   "devpath"
	 ...
       EndSection

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.

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       This driver supports the Aiptek HyperPen 4000U, 5000U, 6000U, 8000U and
       12000U USB-based input tablet on some Linux platforms.

CONFIGURATION DETAILS
       Please  refer to xorg.conf(5) 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. "BottomX" is a synonym.

	       Option "YBottom" "number"
		   First  of  three sets of parameters to set the active zone.
		   This sets the Y coordinate of  the  bottom  corner  of  the
		   active zone. "BottomY" is a synonym.

	       Option "XMax" "number"
		   Second  of three sets of parameters to set the active zone.
		   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"
		   Second of three sets of parameters to set the active	 zone.
		   This	 sets the the Y coordinate of the bottom corner of the
		   active zone. The Top Y corner's coordinate is fixed	at  0.
		   "MaxY" is a synonym.

	       Option "XOffset" "number"
		   Third  of  three sets of parameters to set the active zone.
		   This sets the X coordinate of the top corner of the	active
		   zone. "OffsetX" is a synonym.

	       Option "YOffset" "number"
		   Third  of  three sets of parameters to set the active zone.
		   This sets the Y coordinate of the top corner of the	active
		   zone. "OffsetY" is a synonym.

	       Option "XSize" "number"
		   Third  of  three sets of parameters to set the active zone.
		   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"
		   is a synonym.

	       Option "YSize" "number"
		   Third  of  three sets of parameters to set the active zone.
		   This sets the Y coordinate of  the  bottom  corner  of  the
		   active  zone. Unlike others, this parameter is expressed in
		   relative coordinates from the "YOffset" parameter.  "YSize"
		   is a synonym.

	       Option "ZMin" "number"
		   Minimum  pressure  reading  that  will be accepted from the
		   Stylus tool. "MinZ" is a synonym.

	       Option "ZMax" "number"
		   Maximum pressure reading that will  be  accepted  from  the
		   Stylus tool. "MaxZ" is a synonym.

	       Option "XThreshold" "number"
		   Minimal  change  in	X  coordinate  position	 that  will be
		   accepted as data input.  "ThresholdX" is a synonym.

	       Option "YThreshold" "number"
		   Minimal change  in  Y  coordinate  position	that  will  be
		   accepted as data input.  "ThresholdY" is a synonym.

	       Option "ZThreshold" "number"
		   Minimal change in pressure reading that will be accepted as
		   data input.	"ThresholdZ" is a synonym.

	       Option "InvX" "on"
		   Inverts X coordinate reports. "XInv" is a synonym.

	       Option "InvY" "on"
		   Inverts Y coordinate reports. "YInv" is a synonym.

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

	       Option "KeepShape" "on"
		   When this  option  is  enabled,  the	 active	 zone	begins
		   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
		   sets the level of debugging info reported.

       This driver is currently Linux specific.
