I have a dell 15r XPS. Dual boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.10. Touchscreen works awesome in Windows 8. Never worked in Ubuntu and I didn't expect it ever would. One day I happen to touch the screen and I have touch capability in Ubuntu. Not all the time, but most boot ups has me with touch.
What do I need to show you, for you to tell me what is driving my touchscreen?
(NOTE: yes, this is somewhat of a lengthy post. However, I want to ensure you have enough info about what I'm attempting.)
I attended Microsoft's //build/ conference a couple weeks ago and picked up one of those new "developer preview" tablet/slate PCs. This is a tricked-out Samsung slate of some kind; either it is or it isn't a variant of the forthcoming Series 7 slates.
I have heard some things about Gnomebuntu which is to be a new Ubuntu variant, although that may not be its final name. There is an article at world of gnome, which describes it as a community developed variant (much like Xubuntu), but will it be classed as an official variant like Xubuntu? I wonder if anyone else had any more information on the project?
I have an hp slate 21 running android jelly bean that needs something like ubuntu on it to make it useful. I accept I need to root it and risk bricking it but it's not much use as it stands so not much lost
