Raspberry Pi LCD Touchscreen Calibration

Raspberry Pi LCD Touchscreen Calibration

In this video, I go through the process of calibrating an LCD touchscreen on the Raspberry Pi. Calibrating the LCD touchscreen should be done after installing it to make it more responsive and accurate.

    This is going to sound stupid but I get as far as carrying out the calibration and the test successfully, but how do you then quit the TSLIB test to go back to the desktop? Any help please would be really appreciated I really need it to work for a college project, thanks

    I able to to configure touch calibration correctly on 3.5 inch pi screen.

    There is a issue with actual touch coordinate and touch event on screen.

    calibration data on /etc/pointercal and ts_calibrate ouput is different.

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat /etc/pointercal
    -8527 -25 33623136 34 5705 -1482644 65536

    ts_calibrate output:
    Calibration constants: 33623136 -8527 -25 -1482644 34 5705 65536

    Do you know the reason for this.
