That problem could be solved for me with Chrome's --touch-devices command line parameter. Determine X's input device id in a console by xinput list leading to google-chrome --touch-devices=10 on my system.

Try 'unclutter' the purpose of this program is to hide the pointer after the mouse has not moved for a while. Using it, you can make the pointer appear only when the user touches the screen, and disappear right after it. (maybe this was not exactly what you were aiming for. But it is much easier than your alternative =P) To use, install it sudo apt-get ...

I'm going to try and answer the rotation / touch interface part. So basically you can imagine those like having a second desktop upon your desktop. When you rotate your Desktop, you'll then have to do the same with the Touch Interface Desktop. In general you can manage this rotation via $ xsetwacom In my case - I have no knowledge of other tablet ...

I just purchased a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch and replaced the installed Windows 8 with Ubuntu 13.04. Everything worked out of the box, including the touchscreen. 13.04 isn't really touch-optimized -- you have to hit the scroll bar to scroll a window with touch, for instance -- but that's not the hardware's fault, it recognizes the touch event just ...

The relevant program should be "onboard". You can install it by: sudo apt-get install onboard and launch it with "onboard" or from the Dash. I have Xubuntu here so I cannot check, but should be possible to enable it under "assistive technologies" or similar in the menu. The panel icon let you access an extensive set of features. Never tried it (I do ...

I have a Dell XT2 which works very nicely with Ubuntu 10.10, Unity, and uTouch. It's a touch screen tablet. It was issued to me by the uTouch team for uTouch testing with Unity, so it's also recommended by the uTouch developers. If you're just interested in having multi-touch and gesture support, I suggest looking at Apple's magic mouse, and trackpad

I have filled a bug report about touchscreen. It is at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-input-evdev/+bug/1121379 . Please press the "affects me too" button in order to increase the "heat" and make more people/developers notice it. I can help with more tests or trying fixes. So if you have to propose something to test (e.g. install a ...

This is not a problem with "multitouch", it is a problem with "touch". Before the 14.04 update, the touchscreen was interpreted as another mouse. After the update it is not, but unfortunately Chromium is not reporting touch-events. This means that no graphical web app can be used with Ubuntu on a touch screen. I managed to make it work on my computer by ...

I was able to ask Stephen Webb who currently leads the Unity Technical Team about touch input. I contacted him because he used to be the lead developer on the uTouch-geis package which was split into three different packages Frame, Geis, and Grail. These are the primary touch screen controls for 13.04 and he is also heavily involved in other multi-touch ...

I had the same issue on my brand-new XPS12. It might be the newer model that prevents installation from 12.x or 13.04. I had success with 13.10 beta 1, though. Pretty much everything works out of the box, except multi-touch. No idea where to look as sputnik is already supposed to be integrated...

I'm trying out Ubuntu via a live usb on the Yoga 13 right now. The Yoga 2 Pro is the reboot of that device. Anyway, the are no issues with the touchscreen for me on 13.10. The buttons seem no smaller than they are in Windows, so there's that. I haven't installed the driver to enable wifi, but purchased a $10 Edimax usb adapter that is doing the trick. ...

Yes, your ASUS Laptop will work with Ubuntu. I think the touchscreen will work since this video on YouTube shows a ASUS Vivobook with Ubuntu 12.10 with the touchscreen in action. If you have a Vivobook or something similar, more than likely it will work. You can dual boot if you want. Keep in mind that your ASUS laptop came with Windows 8, which means it ...

I now (on 13.04) had a similar problem but xinput map-to-output did help, if I do things in the right order. xinput map-to-output tweaks the "Coordinate Transformation Matrix". xinput_calibrator sets "Evdev Axis Calibration" and is completely unaware of "Coordinate Transformation Matrix". It also always opens stretched to the full available output area. ...

To get touch scrolling in Firefox working, install this addon extension Here It's an addon called Grab and Drag. It allows you to scroll using the touchscreen in the same fashion as a tablet or smartphone. Double tapping on the screen should also open files and folders in nautilus.

I installed 12.04 on my Asus EP121 a couple of weeks ago and everything works out of the box with one exception. The stylus works flawlessly, but touching the screen with your finger results in a 'right click' that won't release. To fix that grab the newest egalax driver and install. After that it works beautifully! They've even done some work to the ...

The Always Innovating TouchBook is an interesting product that you should take a look at. It is a touch screen ARM tablet/netbook. It comes preinstalled with its own Linux based operating system and supports Ubuntu, Gentoo and some other distros. It is especially interesting because the hardware, as well as the software, is open source. It is also fairly ...

There is a specific command for mapping input to a display in xsetwacom called MapToOutput. Here is what you do: Start by figuring out the name of the display you want to map to.

Looks like Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 have problems with your display. Now that you can boot with live CD, I suggest that once your tablet is up with the live CD, you mount your system and chroot into it: $ umount /dev/sda1 # suppose it's your hard disk with Ubuntu on it, # and the mount point is / (root) $ mkdir /mnt/system $ mount ...
