I want to install Ubuntu 11.10 on my Tablet (MSI WindPad 110W, currently running windows 8), but the touch-controls are not as it should be:

  • Multitouch doesn't work. Which software/settings do I need?
  • Right click doesn't work. (Holding the finger on the screen)
  • The performance of the screen keyboard is very bad.
  • Scrolling of websites etc. doesn't work
  • pitch-to-zoom doesn't work

Need help please!

Execute lsusb commmand, find your touchscreen ID in the output (looks like 04e7:0022) and check if it's present in this list of supported multitouch devices:

If it's not you can try enabling it and reporting compatibility here:

It would be really really nice if anybody could adapt the ENAC tutorials for the specific case of Ubuntu distribution. – RazTaz Jun 24 '12 at 22:16
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the links for reference. – Eliah Kagan Jun 25 '12 at 0:17
Thanks, I've tried enhancing the answer. What do you think? – int_ua Jun 25 '12 at 12:43
