libinput measure touch-size
tool measures the size and orientation of a touch as provided by the kernel.
This is an interactive tool. When executed, the tool will prompt the user to
interact with the touch device. On termination, the tool prints a summary of the
values seen. This data should be attached to any
touch-size-related bug report.
This is a debugging tool only, its output may change at any time. Do not
rely on the output.
This tool usually needs to be run as root to have access to the
If a device node is given, this tool opens that device node. Otherwise, this
tool searches for the first node that looks like a touch-capable device and
uses that node.
Set the logical touch size thresholds to

it is considered logically down. If a touch is logically down and goes below
the size in
it is considered logically up. The thresholds have to be in
device-specific pressure values and it is required that

The threshold has to be in device-specific pressure values.
If the touch-thresholds or the palm-threshold are not provided,
this tool uses the thresholds provided by the device quirks (if any) or the
