misalignment touch Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1

Hi all,

I am using Spacedesk to use my Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 as an extended touch panel to my Windows 10 PC. Everything is working fine, except that the touch is increasingly misaligned in vertical direction: at the top of the screen it matches perfectly, but at the bottom of the screen the pointer is about 100 pixels ahead of the touch.

Anyone ideas why this is so? Is there any way to correct/calibrate this?

Hi @f1sd,
This is a known bug of spacedesk android viewer. It usually happens when the bottom navigation bar of your android device is visible over the spacedesk viewer screen.
We are currently reimplementing our spacedesk Android viewer app with the new architecture.
Hopefully this will fix various bugs including yours.
Estimated release of this version is probably 3-6 months from now.
If problem still persist, please get back to us so we can fix it from there.

Hello,

I'm experiencing a similar problem. I'm using spacedesk app on a Toscido K107 android device as a wireless touch panel for a windows 10 PC. Tablet resolution is set to 1280 x 800 and the bottom navigation bar is not visible.

The touch is increasingly misaligned respect the pointer towards the bottom: at the top of the screen the pointer matches perfectly the touch spot, while at the bottom of the screen the pointer goes way down (approx 100 pixels down) respect the touch spot. It looks like the touch grid resolution does not match the screen resolution, causing progressive vertical misalignement.

I really hope this problem will be fixed in the next app release, because i have to say Spacedesk is otherwise really great.

Best regards,
Stefano

Please update to most recent spacedesk Driver version 0.9.31 and spacedesk Android Viewer version 0.9.50.
The wrong touch position bug should be fixed by now.
Looking forward to your feedback.

Hello, and thank you for quick support!

I've updated both latest Windows spacedesk driver and android viewer. I've been testing the improved app functionality and I'm happy to say that the bug has been fixed for me. Now the pointer position matches perfectly the touch spot.

There is only a minor issue that I'd like to report: when I minimize spacedesk app (without shutting it close) in order to use the android tablet for other purposes, then I go back to spacedesk either tapping on its icon, or calling it back from the recent-app button in the bottom bar, the android bottom bar itself will appear solid and always-on (instead of being transparent and auto-hiding within a few seconds) causing a slight vertical shrinking of the windows display, and causing again an increasing vertical mismatch between touch spot and pointer position - this time the pointer is shifted upwards respect the touch spot.

I can work around this problem by closing the app and launching it again: now the android bottom bar will turn transparent and hide immediately. Both resolution and touch position will be perfect. I wonder if is there a way to force the bottom bar to hide itself upon calling back the spacedesk app from recently used list, just like it was launched from scratch... this could be really useful.

Thank you again, I'm really loving spacedesk

Stefano
