Are you kidding ??? Does the touchscreen support pressure sensitivity?
Normally it wouldn't, you'd have only two values... Because sensitivity
touchscreens really are rare... That's why wacom does use the pen to
report pressure info on their tablets

I would say touchscreen calibration = scaling (to resolution) +
reference points

I would say the best would be to watch pressure evolution.... If it
springs from 0 to 400 in less than sotg like 200 ms, then you got the
"button" event. Is it feasable?

I got a question: does stylus usage on original A780 show the pressure

Another one: you say you're workin on building X-e. Are you talking
about kdrive?
