Tried searching but no one has this model/series it seems. Anyone know of any working touchscreen drivers for the VAIO VPCL2XXX series desktop all in ones?

Device is NextWindow Voltron

A good starting point might be nextwindow.com/nextwindow_support/… (top Google result for "NextWindows Voltron Linux"). –  zpletan Mar 27 '12 at 13:48
    
What is it's Vendor:Product ids? You can get them from lsusb output. Are they listed here: lii-enac.fr/en/architecture/linux-input/multitouch-devices.html ? –  int_ua Mar 27 '12 at 16:33
    
@int_ua I'm having this same issue so I'm going to answer. It shows 1926:0bce - nextwindow's site doesn't help, I don't think it is picking up from /dev/input/event. –  Nic May 11 '12 at 22:58
    
It's not listed, I think you need to report it: lii-enac.fr/en/architecture/linux-input/… –  int_ua May 11 '12 at 23:47

Try this page. The file to edit is /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Be sure to have a backup of your original xorg.conf before you modify it. This could save your life.

sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-backup-20120517-touchscreen-not-working

Then edit the file accordingly to what is written in the above link.

Remember that editing xorg.conf can lead to a broken X Windows System (no GUI) and thus is pretty dangerous if you're not fully comfortable with a bare command line.

If you should have troubles, you can always:

  1. try to remove xorg.conf (sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf) and see if Xorg can start a decent X server without it
  2. issue a sudo Xorg -configure (see Configuring X11). It should create a xorg.conf.new in your /root directory. Then try to copy it to its original location with sudo cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  3. read a bit more about X configuration and expecially about display resolution configuration (and in your specific case also about input device configuration) and try to build yourself your first working xorg.conf

Good luck.

EDIT: sorry didn't see the previous comments. Also found a guy that probably did it:

The touch screen is a NextWindow Voltron 23.6" touchscreen. It works great in windows and with a little configuring I can get it to work in Ubuntu. To get it working in Ubuntu I need to install the evtouch driver for X and then add a few lines to the X config.
