    As far as I can see it's not OpenBoard. Doing the xinput --map thing seems to invoke some defaults.
    If you don't do the input --map thing when you touch the smartboard the mouse moves on the primary screen. You need to tell it where the touch is coming from
    Interestingly I found a python script that calculates the whole thing it even includes how the current matrix is wrong. Adding that to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ just gets
    overwritten as soon as you do the xinput --map thing which you have to do last !!

    Best wishes

    Yes, I got that. My thinking was that the OpenBoard developers could incorporate the device handling with xinput command for mapping, and calibration handled at a user (application) level.

    I hadn't thought about that - I was assuming the smartboard was the only screen involved. As I mentioned already, I don't have any direct experience with using these.

    Yes, it's a shame that mapping can't be incorporated into the xorg configuration file, which is why I suggest a bug report or feature request to support your use case.
