Yeah, that was the first problem.
X complained about the "DebugLevel" entry.
Didn't wanna start.

Of note - I played with this for HOURS last night after giggling=20
like an idiot for twenty minutes that it actually worked.
Changing X & Y values had *no* effect on it.
I even tried 0 and negative values.
Nothing seemed to change.
I had been restarting X with ctrl+alt+bkspc,=20
but even tried a few by completely rebooting.
No change. No observed effect.

Well, I spoke to Elo today, and they want me to do it in=20
Windows and DOS, as it's the only thing they understand.
The guy wants me to try a calibration utility, but when he told me it was=
software calibration that didn't actually make any changes on the control=
I couldn't see the point.
Still, I'll try it to see the results for comparison.
Which X are you using?
Mine's 4.3.0-2 .
