A utility to keep the proper alignment between the screen and an X input device

The xrandr-align is a utility to keep the proper alignment between the screen and an X input device. The utility works in both ways. First, it can dynamically align an input device (touchscreen) to correspond the varying orientation of the screen. Second, it can dynamically align the screen to correspond the varying spacial orientation of the display (handheld device). In addition it can list available input devices and screen outputs.


X11, XInput and Xrandr libraries, ANSI C compiler, GNU Autotools, make.
