I use Ubuntu 12.10 and the touchscreen works almost correctly. The only problem is that in Gtk3 programs you can, if X knows you have a touchscreen, use kinetic scrolling. I can't do this because X detects it as a mouse.

So my question is how do I make X know that the "mouse" is in fact a touchscreen? The touchscreen is an usb:

  • You should probably specify a little more hardware details, IE is it a tablet or just a PC with touch screen, what brand is it and so on – jackweirdy Jan 12 '13 at 18:19
  • Does it matter? It is an all-in-one pc from Asus. Maybe it's a ET1602 or something similar. – Esben Damgaard Jan 12 '13 at 18:59

I believe Evtouch can help!
