Add weston-touch-calibrator to Torizon 6

Which is the right version of weston-touch-calibrator caontainer to be used with image torizon-core-docker-verdin-imx8mm-Tezi_6.1.0-devel-20230117+build.150.tar ?
Should I use :2 or :3?
Am I right that it should match the weston-vivante release (that is :2 in the torizoncore image I use)?
How can I deploy weston-touch-calibrator container to my Verdin iM8M-Mini?
Should I edit docker-compose.yml and rebuild with torizoncore-builder?
Or is there a quick way?


Hi @vix ,

Hope you’re doing fine.

Did you see this article?

Best Regards

Yes, but I don’t know how to have the container available on the device.
Then I can start it with docker run

Greetings @vix,

I’m not sure I understand. If you run docker run as documented in the linked article it will automatically pull the correct container image if it does not already exist on the system.

Hi @jeremias.tx
the Verdin is on an embedded system that doesn’t have access to internet.
It would be much easier with network access, but I can’t.
Only my devdelopment PC has access to internet.

Hello @vix,

There are two ways to run the docker container in this case that I can suggest to you (assuming that you have a USB-A port accessible on your carrier board):

  1. Load the containers from a USB drive directly. You can save the docker image into a tar archive from your development machine using the command docker save (docker save | Docker Documentation) and then load it on the module using docker load command (docker load | Docker Documentation). You need to create separate tar files for each of your images, load them separately and then create the docker-compose file in /var/sota/storage/docker-compose directory. The module doesn’t need network access to run the containers once the images are already available locally on the module. As @jeremias.tx mentioned, you need network access only to pull the images if they don’t already exist on the system.

  2. Use TorizonCore Builder tool to bundle your docker-compose file into the OS and then deploy it directly to the module either via SSH or by copying the Tezi image to a USB storage (Detailed Manual | Toradex Developer Center), or serving the images using a local zeroconf server.

Please let me know if you need any further asistance after you give these a try :slight_smile:

Hello @rudhi.tx
Next week I’ll test.
I know how to use TorizonCore Builder tool to bundle the docker-compose file, so probably I’ll go in this way.
Only one question: does weston-touch-calibrator container depends on other containers? I suppose it depends on weston-vivante only.
Something like this?

    container_name: weston-touch-calibrator
      - weston-vivante

Hello @vix,

I would first try with just one service for weston-touch-calibrator in the docker-compose file. Something like this:

    image: torizon/weston-touch-calibrator:2
      - type: bind
        source: /dev
        target: /dev
      - type: bind
        source: /run/udev/
        target: /run/udev/
      - type: bind
        source: /etc/udev/rules.d
        target: /etc/udev/rules.d
version: '2.4'
  portainer_data: {}

Just FYI, I wrote this docker-compose file based on the docker run command given here for starting weston touch calibration container.

Could you please give this a try and see if it works? If not please let me know.

Dear @vix,

Do you have any updates on this topic?

Not yet.
I hope in the next few days.
