This is a followup to Chrome + Touchscreen + Unity (14.04) Has anyone had the ability to use touch-devices on newer versions of Chrome and Ubuntu? This seems to no longer work for me
I found a combination of these answers is currently working for me. If I restart without the --touch-devices flag and then I navigate to chrome://restart, I get working touch.
I should note that that does not appear to include any kind of window controls (I can't drag the window around or resize it with touch), but it does fix scrolling, clicking links, clicking in the location bar, etc.
Pretty weird but in my case (Samsung Series 7 ULTRA, Ubuntu 15.04, Chrome 43.0.2357.65 (64-bit)) it started working after removing
It seems that chrome can autodetect touch devices now.
I own a Dell XPS 13, running Ubuntu 15.04.
Touch does not work on chrome when I start it. However, if I just restart it, by opening a tab to chrome://restart for example, touch will start working!
