Touch screen with X on FreeBSD

Hello eveyone,

Perhaps the fact that I want to run on FreeBSD is not significant since it appears that driver works with X.

I have a lot of experience with touch screens on MS Windows based systems and after a while they always require recalibration.  It also appears that I have to edit the XF86Config file myself to calibrate the touch screen in an X environment which in-and-of-itself is not a problem.  The problem arises when I leave the system on-site.  I cannot require that the supprt staff on-site must be able to calibrate manually.  I was wondering if there are any utilities to provide calibration in X and if so what they are.

Ideally I would not have to calibrate a live system but I don't know if that's possible.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You can adjust touchscreen coordinates in xorg.conf ( or in XF86Config if you prefer non-default windowing).
Or you can write a software which adjusts this file according to user touches.
