palmax - Palmax (TR88L803) touchscreen driver
Option "Device" "devpath"
palmax is an XFree86 input driver for the Palmax
The palmax driver functions as a pointer input device, and
is normally used as the X server's core pointer. It supports positioning
and mouse buttons using the touchscreen display and lid buttons on the
Palmax PD1000, Palmax PD1100. In theory
also any other system using a TR88L803 wired to a serial port.

covers configuration details specific to this driver.
