I followed these calibration instructions from the manufacturer.
I have attempted to calibrate from the command line
usr@hostname:~ $ echo $DISPLAY :0.0 usr@hostname:~ $ sudo DISPLAY=:0.0 xinput_calibrator Error: No calibratable devices found. usr@hostname:~ $
And attemping to calibrate from the gui(menu->preferences->calibrate touchscreen), I receive the same error.
What is going on here? The display variable exists and the screen otherwise works.
